NORTH STAR BOY duly obliged when dropped into a claimer for the first time at Lingfield earlier this month. The switch back to Turf won't be a problem and he looks capable of giving weight to this bunch. Next best may be veteran Tajneed, though his winning form this year has come in sellers and he's generally though better with plenty of give in the ground. Noverre To Go looks held on collateral form and has run a couple of shockers since finishing fourth over 5f here last month while Amethyst Dawn also needs to bounce back. Commanche and Captain Kendall have a bit to find at the weights.
