Pull The Pin has done all his winning so far on the Fibresand and beat Art Dzeko at Southwell last month. Above The Stars can race off a lower mark on this surface but he's now had 19 starts on the all-weather without success and course and distance winners Reginald Claude and Whipphound make more appeal. SLEEK never threatened when third over 7f here last time but first-time headgear is applied for her handicap debut and Marco Botti's filly won't have to find that much to come out best in this company.
