Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

GREATEST STAR opened his account in a weak race at Southwell last time, but he's been allotted a fair opening mark so looks capable of following up on handicap debut. Punctuation caught the eye finishing with running left on his first start in handicaps at Huntingdon in May and remains capable of better now setting out for Fergal O'Brien. Petrol Head and Flamenco de Kerser complete the shortlist.
