Reve De Nuit is fit from hurdling and ran up to his mark when last seen at this track over a year ago. He'll go close on today's terms if at his best but LA ESTRELLA is virtually guaranteed to run his race. He just failed to catch the winner over 2m at Lingfield last time and is the one to beat back over this course and distance. Noguchi is also carving out a niche for himself at this level and scored here before landing another claimer on the Polytrack while decent jumper Ultimate is a course winner and makes more appeal than Crassula.
