Verdict

STARS OVER THE SEA always had matters comfortably in hand when making all under top weight in a Newcastle nursery last time. He's a relentless galloper and may be capable of ending the winning run of Chief Barker. The latter only won by half-a-length at Sandown and Newmarket and this is easily his toughest task to date. Riverboat Springs has his stamina to prove over an extra quarter-mile but Postponed should stay after winning over 7f at Yarmouth and is less-exposed than the filly Lily Rules. Chriselliam was well beaten in a Group 3 at Deauville last time but this is easier.
