Verdict

Noble Alan has to give plenty of weight to a trio of improving three-year-olds that includes Bayan and Pistol. Both were placed on their latest starts and look sure to be in the mix but STAR FOR LIFE makes more appeal. The half-brother to a multiple Grade 1 winner in America stepped up on his Polytrack debut effort to finish runner-up at Chester last time behind a well-regarded Ballydoyle inmate and further progress is expected. Fleeting Image wasn't far behind the selection at Chester and should go well again but the remainder look up against it.
