UNIVERSAL ORDER will start at prohibitive odds in this despite returning from an absence. David Simcock’s colt made a winning start at Newcastle last year and was beaten by only a nose carrying a penalty at Kempton in October. Today’s opposition have yet to register any worthwhile form though Youarestar should finish closer with a hood and a tongue-tie added and stablemate Narina may do better on this faster ground after struggling at Nottingham on her debut. The remaining pair are even harder to recommend.
