INTERCHOICE STAR is the selection here, ahead of Tag Team and Convince. The selection has looked well since joining the Hollinshead yard, has proved his effectiveness at this trip and looks capable of victory. The four-year-old just lost out last time out, but his ever improving form leads us to give him the nod. Tag Team is one of the more exposed runners today, he has not shown much for a long time but has given hints of revival. John Harris¿ eight-year-old is a prolific all-weather winner off higher marks in the past and may be able to snatch a ninth career win here today. Kevin Prendergast¿s Convince has been improved since joining his current yard and has won a classified event over 6f at Kempton previously and may be worth a look today but it is with Interchoice Star we side in what should be a closely fought contest.
