Verdict

THOUSAND STARS generally sees the back of his illustrious stablemate Hurricane Fly disappearing in front of him but is a really smart performer in his own right, especially when stepping up in trip. He's taken his time to find his form since his two brilliant victories in France early last summer but should now be at his peak and has to be the selection. Un Beau Matin is a very nice prospect who probably would have won a Grade 2 here in December but for falling two out and is still on the upgrade. Whatuthink was well beaten in that event but had earlier won a similar race here and can never be discounted despite his advancing years. On His Own is having a warm-up race before the Grand National for which he has attracted very strong support.
