The Sportsman's Verdict
Star Shield has thrived since being switched to a mile, finishing first at Doncaster and second at Yarmouth, and looks poised to go close with Scott McCullagh's valuable 5lb claim likely to help. Markazi has been performing creditably in recent weeks but is in danger of becoming frustrating to follow and a more solid option might be recent Newmarket hero MOUNTAIN RESCUE. A 6lb rise has followed, but he has spent much of his career off higher marks and this looks another nice opening for him.
