Trainer Comments:
Jonathan Snaith: "Star Express has great form coming into the race but there are stamina doubts. She is best over 1400m to a mile but, if she should get the trip, she will be a serious contender."

"Her gallop was the most impressive of our runners and she flew down the straight. She loves Greyville. She had foot issues previously which are now behind her."

Jockey Comments:

Winning Form - Magic Tips Comment: 
This chestnut mare has had a great campaign which started from the Cape summer and she transferred that form to this province. Admittedly, she was fortunate to beat her stablemate AFRICAN NIGHT SKY (1kg better off) in her penultimate run but her swift turn of foot got her into that winning position. She stays well having won easily over ten furlongs and the Silvano mare won't be far off the early speed so today's likely sedate gallop could aid her cause. She has her peak showing and is capable of upsetting with an in-form jockey aboard.

Verdict: Two solid performances on return to this province, race could be run to suit her.
