Race Verdict

BYRON BLUE clearly relished a proper stamina test in soft ground when opening his account with ease over 1m6f at Haydock a week ago and, granted similar conditions over an extra furlong today, he can brush aside a 6lb penalty with the in-form Graham Lee on board again. Queen's Star has shaped as though further would suit in her three maiden runs and could be the potential fly in the ointment now upped in trip for her handicap bow, while Stickleback rates best of the remainder.

Selection: Byron Blue        Danger: Queen's Star        Alternative: Stickleback
