Verdict

Several to consider in this competitive nursery. NEW STAR tops the shortlist having finished with a flourish when fifth over 6f here a fortnight ago, leaving the distinct impression that the return to this trip would be in his favour. The hat-trick seeking Malayan should have more to offer, but Tut Tut is open to improvement, too, and is feared most on the back of her recent maiden success.
