ALLURING STAR remains in fine form having completed a hat-trick with victory in an apprentices' race at Nottingham last week. A winner without a penalty, she has obvious claims of continuing her winning run. Red Charmer drops back in trip after going close over 1m2f but is 5lb higher than September's victory over track and trip. I'm Super Too has done all his winning here but the last time was back in 2011 while Dark Ocean ran a shocker at Pontefract last time having won at the same track before that. Act Your Shoe Size won here last season but arrives out of form as does Loud.
