LA ESTRELLA was winning for the 11th time at this track when scoring over 1m4f in February. He landed the odds in last year's renewal and will be a short-price to repeat as he comes out best at the weights. Dontpaytheferryman is another multiple winner on this surface and he makes more appeal than Fibresand debutants Enroller and Irish import Aragorn Rouge. The latter is having his first start for new connections here while Jack Dawkins is a recent winner at the track but looks up against it on today's terms.
