Kia Ora Star (Ascot Race 5 No. 1):
This seven-year-old Blackfriars gelding is the early favourite in this Graduation Handicap, One Metro Win over 1800m. He tried hard when 1.93 lengths 4th over 1600m at Ascot on 20 February, then ran on strongly for a 3.47 length win over 1675m at Bunbury on 11 March. That was his 4th win from 40 starts, and I think he will find it too hard to put together back-to-back wins.
