Verdict

TEMASEK STAR had been knocking on the door on turf before winning with plenty in hand back on the all-weather at Wolverhampton on his latest start. He has a 6lb penalty to overcome but the manner of that success suggests he can defy it. Easy Boy bounced back to form when second on his latest outing at Tipperary and has good course form to boast, while Lucky Red could have more to offer tackling 1m4f having placed twice over 1m2f at Down Royal and Ayr recently.

Verdict

TEMASEK STAR gained reward for his good form with a taking win at Wolverhampton on Monday and could follow up. Easy Boy and Small Bit Of Love are a couple of the dangers.
