Theatrical Star is the clear pick on form and enjoyed a morale-boosting victory at Exeter at the start of the month. But he has two ways of running and may not be one to take too short a price about. We'll take him on with the more reliable SUSTAINABILITY, who had no problem justifying short odds over course and distance last month and is sure to run his race again. Financial Climate appears to be improving but may do better back in handicaps while Madame Jasmine is best watched on her fencing bow.
