There's rarely a meeting goes by here without PRINCELY HERO making an appearance. He's won twice here over shorter distances but has won over 3m2f at Plumpton and, edging towards a decent mark again, looks the one to be on. Maid Of Silk carries a penalty for last week's victory at Newton Abbot but still looks the danger with none of the others arriving in any kind of form. Nothingbutthetruth is probably the pick of them.
