Aiaam Al Wafa landed a claimer at Windsor in April but now looks a bit high in the weights. Courtesy Call was beaten a long way into third at Beverley and will have to do better while Stickleback looked very one-paced over 1m6f at Nottingham and is vulnerable to something with a bit of speed on this ground. VELVET STAR has shown nothing in three runs, all over a mile. He's by Galileo and is related to numerous middle-distance winners so this should be his trip and he's taken to make a winning handicap debut.
