Verdict

Lily's Star could be given a form boost in the previous two races as those who occupied the places behind her two weeks ago are involved. However, she has plenty of ground to make up on KNOCKGRAFFON LAD on earlier running and the latter, who has already won three times here this month, can complete a four-timer despite a rise of 25lb in the period. Confidence bounced back to form with a fine effort behind Home Secretary a fortnight ago and a similar effort would see him in the shake-up. He just holds Prince Of Fashion on that run though the latter is more consistent. The lightly-raced Pivotal Rock showed that he would be winning again soon with a very good run here last month and could provide the man threat.
