Verdict

A strong handicap where just about every single runner can be considered as steadily progressive within their respective grades. The Mark Johnston trained pair are both hardy performers with last week's penalised Ascot scorer Dominating favoured over Haydock winner Star Of The East. The Grand Visir ran a blinder in the Melrose over C&D at the Ebor Festival in August (fifth) for one so inexperienced, and any gains will add to the push from William Haggas to become champion trainer on the Knavesmire for 2017. However, it is the sole filly in the line up, STAR ROCK who rates as the selection. She beat subsequent Newmarket winner Cribbs Causeway over 1m4f on her latest start, and therefore, a 5lb rise now appears incredibly lenient. Her trainer excels with these type of slow maturing horses, and she should relish the extra yardage now trying 1m6f for the first time.
