Verdict

SKY FULL OF STARS put in a promising display on stable/seasonal debut at this track last time when third in a big field and could build on those exertions for Chris Gordon. This softer ground should suit the eight-year-old and he makes greater appeal than Dan Gun, who could also have more to give on his second start for a new trainer, and Zante, who surely needed his first outing for well over a year at Plumpton last time out.

Verdict

SKY FULL OF STARS made a pleasing start for his new yard here last month and appeals as the most solid option in a race where plenty have questions to answer. Mazalto and Dan Gun are a couple of others to keep an eye on.
