Star Maker disappointed on his only previous try over a mile but led for a long way over 7f at Salisbury 10 days ago. Manners Please won over7f on soft going at Thirsk so should have no problems with the extra furlong. He makes more appeal than Native Prospect and the disappointing Sufrah, who is now visored. Party Nights maybe improving, however, though BAILEYS APPRENTICE is preferred. Twice placed over Beverley's stiff 7f, he'll relish the extra distance here on breeding and is on an upward curve.
