Verdict

A multiple winner in Italy, The Big Haerth won at Wolverhampton on his British debut but was a disappointing odds-on favourite there last time. Desert Dreamer can boast nine wins on Polytrack but the last of those came back in 2009 and he ran a stinker here a week ago. This looks a good opportunity for ARMY OF STARS, who was beaten by the narrowest of margins at Southwell last time but has won twice over today's trip on the Polytrack. Rubenstar had Decency behind when scoring at Wolverhampton earlier this week but is up against it on these terms.
