SUNRISE STAR won as she liked when starting odds-on at Bath for her reappearance. She beat little on that occasion but should have enough to take care of Amahoro in this. The latter went very close at Bath last time with Oriental Relation well behind and should also have the beating of Naivasha on collateral form. Mr Dandy Man won a lower grade sprint at Salisbury last time but has been upped 8lb for his trouble while it's too soon to write off the lightly-raced Heavens Edge.
