LA ESTRELLA is looking to add to his extraordinary tally of 21 victories on the all-weather. He failed to give weight to Reve De Nuit, rated 93, when third here in May but has a more straightforward task in this. Tabaayun looks the only serious threat to Don Cantillon's charge as he's won a couple of plating races this year though has has to encounter this surface. The remainder have little chance at the weights or on recent form, unless Alsaqi shows a big improvement on his modest efforts earlier in the year.
