      Verdict

      Toni's A Star finished well ahead of Celerity when scoring over the minimum trip at Haydock recently and can race off a similar mark back on the all-weather. Spin Top posted his best effort so far this year when third at Ffos Las last week and can figure but FLOWING CLARETS (NAP) looks set to exploit a slide down the weights having finished in front of Ask The Guru and Hurricane Alert when runner-up over course and distance last time and John Bridger’s mare gets the nod.

      Formwatch

      Archie Stevens 14-1 (9-7) Awkward start and slowly into stride, held up in rear, headway halfway, weakened over 1f out, 9th of 10, 13 1/2l behind Imperial Legend (9-4) at Wetherby 5f hcp (6) gs in May.

      Ask The Guru 7-1 (9-6) Mid-division on inside, headway over 1f out, kept on inside final furlong, no threat, 5th of 9, 4 1/4l behind Sandfrankskipsgo (9-9) at Lingfield 5f hcp (6) pol in Jul.

      Toni's A Star 7-2 (8-8) Blindfold off a fraction late and went left start, raced freely and led, headed narrowly inside final furlong, edged left, rallied to lead again close home, won at Haydock 5f hcp fll (5) gd in Jul beating Boundary Lane (9-8) by nk, 8 ran.

      Flowing Clarets 16-1 (9-2) Chased winner throughout, kept on but never really able to challenge, 2nd of 9, 1/2l behind Sandfrankskipsgo (9-9) at Lingfield 5f hcp (6) pol in Jul.

      Prince Rock (IRE) 12-1 (9-5) Took keen hold, held up in mid-division, not much room over 2f out, never figured, 11th of 13, 11 1/2l behind Navarra Princess (9-4) at Kempton 7f hcp (6) pol in Jun.

      Hurricane Alert 8-1 (9-3) Tried to anticipate start, chased leaders on inside, weakened inside final furlong, 8th of 9, 5l behind Sandfrankskipsgo (9-9) at Lingfield 5f hcp (6) pol in Jul.
