Verdict

Despite having won twice on turf, all of Five Star Junior's 6f victories have been on the Polytrack. Fitz Flyer's sole win was on the Fibresand back in 2009 and Brighton winner Piazza San Pietro has done all his winning in lower grades. The handicapper may have finally caught up with the revitalised Dickie Le Davoir judged on his most recent starts and he'll do well to confirm earlier running with NOODLES BLUE BOY. The latter posted his best effort since winning at Leicester in September when third at Bath on his latest outing and he gets the vote to return to winning ways.
