Blades Princess is the form pick to win the opener at the expense of Amour Propre and Cindy Incidentally. The selection improved from her debut to score at Ripon last month. She will have conditions to suit once again and will only have to reproduce her current form to follow up from her recent success. Amour Propre looked impressive when scoring at Warwick and Bath during the summer. He has not been over raced and has been well placed by his trainer and will be sure to be in the shake up once again. Newcomer Cindy Incidentally is worth noting in the market as she is nicely bred but for the winner we return to Blades Princess.
