Verdict

The top three are clear on official figures, but recent Polytrack winner Uphold is overlooked as he's yet to race on Fibresand and beat lower rated horses at Wolverhampton last time. Dontpaytheferryman was in terrific form here early in the year and will appreciate the return to the Flat after a spell over jumps, but LA ESTRELLA makes most appeal. A nine-time course winner, Don Cantillon's charge has been racing on the turf since May, but his form at this track looks superior to that of his main rivals and he can take this. The remainder look up against it on today's terms.
