Verdict

UKRAINIAN STAR races off a 5lb lower mark than when successful over fences at Hereford on Sunday. Martin Keighley has his team in form and the eight-year-old should go in again. Overlay stays well and is chasing a four-timer in this grade. She's creeping up the weights but only gradually and another solid effort is anticipated. Earcomesthedream won over the C&D at the start of the month but was beaten over a shorter trip at Warwick subsequently and may be a little high in the handicap again now. Acosta may need this and this may be too tough for veteran Arctic Echo nowadays.
