Verdict

Master Burbidge hasn’t won on the all-weather since landing this in 2018 and is 6lb higher today. He went close at Wolverhampton last time but ESTRELA STAR is preferred. The latter has come into his own since stepping up in trip and won over today’s distance before scoring by a wide-margin over 1m6f at Chelmsford earlier in the week. Ali Stronge’s charge looks far enough ahead of the handicapper to defy a 10lb penalty. Capricorn Prince will need to improve on previous efforts over 2m though Percy's Prince was winning off today’s mark at Kempton last year and looks best of the rest.
