Verdict

LA ESTRELLA starts the new year looking to record his 21st win on the all-weather and it's difficult to see any of today's opposition preventing him from doing so. Don Cantillon's charge beat much higher-rated rivals than these with the minimum of fuss over C&D last month and a similar outcome is expected here. Father Shine arrives on the back of a win over fences but was well beaten in both previous outings on the Flat while Silver Panther finished last in a couple of bumpers before keeping his record intact when failing to beat a rival home on his hurdling debut. Renegotiate and King Fingal are both out of sorts and have a stack to find with the selection anyway.
