WATERFORD STAR has completed a hat-trick since stepping up to this trip and not surprisingly has shot up the weights as a consequence. His last two runs have been on Polytrack but he won easily at Yarmouth on fast ground earlier and should complete a four-timer. Come Here Yew gained his first success when beating the well-handicapped Dr Finlay at Newcastle last week when he stepped up to this trip for the first time. There should be more to come from him and a 3lb rise is no problem with Neil Farley able to claim 5lb. Bowdler's Magic has competed at a much higher grade and is very well handicapped on his last victory at Yarmouth in September. It would be no surprise to see a much better effort in this low-class handicap but Finellas Fortune has now had 24 career starts without winning.
