Formscan - STAR OF ARIA produced his best effort to date when third at Southwell in November and remains on the same mark on his return to turf, having not run too badly at Redcar on his second career outing in September. Sherdil won twice at Beverley last year and may have further improvement to come this season, while Phoenix Beach and Ey Up It's Maggie complete the shortlist.
