Verdict

Shillito started favourite for a Thirsk maiden last week but could only finish third while Star Up In The Sky has only beaten one home in her two runs to date this term. Nurpur won easily at Catterick before finishing second at Ripon, however, while Khelman has his sights lowered a little and shouldn't be discounted. NOBLE DEED has run well in both starts at Windsor this season and can get back to winning ways here as Trinityelitedotcom may do better when returning to 5f judged on his comeback effort at Leicester.
