Manjam ended a long losing run over a longer trip here earlier in the month but a 7lb rise in the weights has done him no favours. Considering his pedigree, Lieutenant Miller has been a little disappointing so far while course specialist Psi ran a shocker at Cheltenham last time. Princely Hero may be in the handicapper's grip but there's probably more to come from HEAVENSTOWN, whose defeat of Ballyfoy here in March has worked out well. Getting weight from last month's Newton Abbot winner Cinevator, he may be the one to beat.
