Verdict

He's Our Star returned to winning ways over 7f here last month. This longer trip is not a problem but a 4lb rise could be and Majestic Mac is another with a bit to prove off his current mark though still finished in front of Gin Palace at Epsom recently. Strawberry Jack faces a tougher task than when placed at Thirsk but PRAIRIE SPY drops in class on the back of a third at Chelmsford and Mark Johnston’s filly should go very close in this grade with a similar effort. First Link also has an easier assignment than when well beaten at Ascot last time – her first outing on Turf.
