Sevenna Star has struggled in all three starts this year though has faced difficult tasks. He debuts on the Fibresand today but the progressive three-year-old BO SAMRAAN found only one too good over track and trip last time. Mark Johnston’s colt narrowly beat the re-opposing Jabbaar at Catterick before that but there should be more to come from him and he’s taken to edge a tight contest. Busy Street may be best over further nowadays but has won on this surface before and an apprentice’s allowance also brings him into the reckoning.
