LA ESTRELLA remains unbeaten at this track after his defeat of Eton Fable over C&D last week. Dane O'Neill seems to do just enough on him to get his head in front and the partnership can rattle up a quick hat-trick here. The Oil Magnate made no more than a satisfactory reappearance when fourth here last month and will need to improve to get the better of third-placed Stadium Of Light, while Indian Pipe Dream hasn't won on the Flat since 2005 and makes his all-weather debut today. Mojeerr ran well last time but looks up against it on today's terms.
