Lightning Spirit and Toga Tiger both scored over track and trip on their latest starts. The latter recorded a much faster time and makes most appeal of that duo but WIND STAR gets another chance. He just failed to catch the winner at Yarmouth last month and this doesn't look any tougher. Brown Pete can finish closer after encountering soft ground at Windsor last time but Putin is weighted to reverse earlier form and is usually thereabouts at this level.
