LA ESTRELLA is looking to add to his incredible tally of 23 wins on the all-weather. Over half of those victories came at this track and Don Cantillon's charge is well treated at the weights on his return to action. Incendo is next best on today's terms though he's yet to race on Fibresand and course winner Royal Alcor makes more appeal as he drops in class. The remainder will do well to get involved although Thereabouts is preferred to stablemate Honoured on his earlier placed efforts at the track.
