Verdict

STAR ANISE posted a better effort over course and distance last time when finishing ahead of Division Belle. Dropping down a grade, she gets a token vote in a poor handicap. Benoordenhout won here last month and went close again off today's mark on his latest start. He's preferred to Sexy Secret, a runner-up in a Brighton seller last time. Choral Clan has been placed over a mile of late but was well beaten on his only start over this longer trip and the less exposed Silken Waters makes more appeal.
