Gala Casino Star has rattled up a hat-trick under apprentice Jordan Nason and the youngster takes off 7lb again here. But he'll do well to defy his new mark here as a few of his opponents are starting to look well handicapped again. One is Jonny Lesters Hair, who goes well here and will probably try to make all again. Always The Lady is back over her best trip while a market move for Universal after a break would be significant but the vote goes to ROBERT THE PAINTER. The booking of Tom Queally for David O'Meara's charge certainly catches the eye and he's dropped another couple of pounds since his latest C&D fourth.
