None of these scream of being particularly well treated so PITTODRIE STAR is given a chance to come back from a break and score. Andrew Balding's runner was held four lengths on his handicap debut but is 3lb better off here and has the advantage of having won at this track. Belgique is from a yard in form so while he has a bit to prove after his last effort is one of the more likely especially with the likes of Saharia and Fivefold needing to improve. Pittodrie Star has scope for more and can take advantage of a good opportunity.
