Verdict

Temasek Star was sent to Wolverhampton on Monday and duly obliged. He's carrying a 6lb penalty but Oisin Orr's claim takes care of most of that. CLAREGATE STREET went up 9lb for her victory over an extended 1m2f here but has continued to run well on Turf and the assessor has dropped her 2lb which may be enough for a further victory with the longer trip likely to suit. Easy Boy loves the track and trip and though he's never won off a mark this high he's gone close enough to be given a chance and Ross Coakley's claim is a major plus. Universal Focus is just 4lb higher than when scoring over the course and distance and he's continued to go well so should make a bold bid under Danny Sheehy, who is very good value for his claim.
