Barsanti scored over track and trip when last seen in a handicap but is 9lb higher today having been placed in Listed company subsequently. Stars Over The Sea is preferred to stablemate Yorkidding but is upped 7lb for winning a lower grade contest at Pontefract. He also finished ahead of a below-par SHAKOPEE over 1m2f at Goodwood before that but the latter had won at Doncaster on his penultimate start and could go close today with the longer trip looking sure to suit. Sindarban is another looking put a modest effort behind him having landed a double in lesser company earlier but Gold Prince is at home at this level, though drops back down in distance, and Gabrial's King is nudged back up the weights after a second at Haydock. The Irish raider Moonmeister doesn’t look particularly well handicapped and neither does Dawn Missile.
