Verdict

Call Me A Star battled on bravely to land a similar contest at Sandown last month, beating Umadachar by a neck with ELEVEN FIFTY NINE a couple of lengths away in third. But we are taking Anthony Honeyball's mare to reverse the form here as she was hampered when Rachael Green tried for a daring run up the rails on the Esher course. Buxom and Ginger Fizz were further back and look held but it will be interesting to see if there's any money for locally-trained pair Diligent and Doyly Carte. The former is unbeaten in two starts but Jason Maguire prefers the latter who ran a fair race under a penalty at Kelso after impressing at Catterick. Willie Mullins' runners in bumper are normally worth a second look but Dr Machini was pulled up on her latest start at Fairyhouse while fellow Irish raider Missunited hasn't raced since disappointing at Navan in November. Plumpton winner Flementime may be best of the rest.
