Marvelino has been placed on his last two starts over 6f but the less-exposed CAPTAIN STARLIGHT makes more appeal. The latter was beaten less than a length over C&D by Paddy's Saltantes three weeks ago and the latter has since franked the form with another victory. Jo Crowley's colt had the re-opposing JD Rockefeller and Hail To Princess well behind and can open his account in this. Camachoice made only a modest debut over track and trip earlier this month but is expected to improve on that here.
