Verdict

Plenty in with a shout in the opener with the vote in favour of STUDY THE STARS. Successful at Wolverhampton in April, he remains on a fair mark, going down narrowly over this trip at Chepstow 7 days ago, and he could be the answer re-united with Simon Walker. Fast Steps, on the back of his second over 1m here, Beverley-scorer Starfighter and My Brother Mike, at likely longer odds, head up the dangers.
