Kadouchski has been raised only 3lb for his recent win at Folkestone but it looks enough to prevent a follow-up as he's yet to win off a mark this high. By contrast, WATERFORD STAR has not finished improving yet judged on his recent cosy victory over C&D and he gets the vote to confirm running with Talbot Green and land his hat trick. Galiotto, Phonic and Blue Cossack have plenty to find with the selection on collateral form while Jacob McCandles only win so far came over a mile on the Fibresand though Keiren Fallon's booking takes the eye.
