This looks a bit of a non-event. The admirable veteran LA ESTRELLA recorded win number 22 on the all-weather with a facile victory at this track last month and today's opposition are racing for the place money. Both Sir Dylan and Bix finished tailed off on their latest starts at this venue, though it was the former's first outing since September. Kneesy Earsy Nosey hasn't raced since 2010 and finished last of four in a seller here in the same year while Loulou Vuitton is in for a surprise as she's never raced over further than 7f on the Polytrack before.
