Above The Stars has yet to encounter soft going but is a leading contender on form having scored over 6f at Pontefract last month. It was testing ground when GOWANHARRY won over today's trip at Newcastle in June and, back on the same mark today, Michael Dods' charge gets the nod. Majestic Manannan should cope with the going though he's 7lb higher than when winning at Carlisle and was well beaten last time while there's a chance Fibresand winner Clubland could also run his race and finish thereabouts. Pavers Star arrives in fine form but was well beaten in a couple of previous starts in soft ground.
