Verdict

Despite a double-figure field going to post this doesn’t look the strongest of events in terms of depth and it should give STAR ASCENDING a good chance of extending his winning run of form on a surface that he acts well on. Leonard Thomas had no chance in a race at Newcastle last time out after a slow start but a repeat of either of his two previous placed efforts here would put him in with a chance. Likewise Ingleby Spring, who showed up well when winning here and may well appreciate the slightly easier grade this afternoon. Di’s Gift is another to enter calculations especially off this mark although he could do with a stiffer test of stamina to show his best.
