Red Forever finally opened his account with victory in a Redcar maiden last week but Tinsill is preferred. The latter continued his good progress adding a win at Hamilton last time to an earlier success at Redcar. But THORNABY PRINCESS is the least exposed of the recent winners and made a winning handicap debut at Ripon on her reappearance. Majorie Fife's filly can go in again with scope for further improvement. Kirtling Belle will have come on for a recent run as she looks to add to last year's win at Newcastle off a 4lb higher mark.
