Verdict

Most of these are looking to get back on track after recent poor runs. Cresta Star is an exception as she scored at Windsor last month but is upped in class and distance today. EXPERT FIGHTER went close at Kempton when headed in the closing stages last time and, on only his fifth start, the Godolphin colt is taken to find enough improvement to get his head in front here with Frankie on board for the first time. Both Hawkeshead and Tartan Gigha ran below their best recently having won their previous starts and Hong Kong Island has separated a couple of ordinary efforts with a decent second at York.
