Verdict

PRINCELY HERO has come right back to his best and, despite being raised 7lb for a recent win over 2m4f here, has won off higher marks in the past. He's difficult to ignore in this grade as most of the opposition struggle to get their head in front. Shantou Breeze has gone up 4lb since losing out narrowly over 2m2f here last time while former pointer Bolachoir looked one-paced when runner-up at Taunton. Master Flight has clearly been difficult to keep sound but was only beaten a neck at Taunton in December following another lengthy break and could be well handicapped.
