Verdict

Grey Britain was only beaten a head in a competitive handicap at Musselburgh last month. Eagle Creek got off the mark in impressive fashion at Lingfield while Via Serendipity wasn’t disgraced in the Greenham on his reappearance, though hasn’t quite fulfilled early expectations so far. Andok should enjoy this first try at a mile but SON OF THE STARS (NAP) should take all the beating given he only had to be pushed out to beat Prosper on his return to action at Chelmsford and the runner-up beat a hot favourite in a conditions race at Ascot on Wednesday.
