Verdict

Five Star Junior will be winning again soon off his current mark and posted a better effort at Lingfield last time, while Colonel Mak is a very smart sprinter at his best, though he's failed to figure in his first couple of starts on the all-weather. A safer option looks to be top weight FRATELLINO, as his good efforts behind the progressive Oasis Dancer at Lingfield this year look the strongest form on offer and Alan McCabe's charge can deservedly get his head in front here. Alben Star's second to Capone over C&D last month merit him for consideration, but Whaileyy has been hit with a 10lb rise for a cosy win at Kempton last time and that could prove beyond him.
