Kashmiri Star has just the one previous win to his credit and doesn't look particularly well handicapped on that form. Boy The Bell has scored at this course but was well beaten by ACE OF SPIES the last time he raced over track and trip in November. The latter has dropped back to the same mark after four subsequent starts on the Polytrack and gets the vote with Hayley Turner on board. Ishiamiracle is another course winner but arrives badly out of form while Upper Lambourn has a shout having tumbled down the weights since he last raced at this track. Pipers Piping is another to keep an eye on off his current mark.
