Sir Mark Prescott has struck winning form a bit earlier than usual this season so the lightly-raced Between Us is one to keep an eye on in the betting on her reappearance. Hepworth has been racing on Polytrack and proved she stays this trip with no problems at Wolverhampton, though an 11lb rise looks excessive. Saint Helena has only gone up 3lb for her Windsor victory and enters the reckoning but the three-year-old CENTRED looks the one to be on as she's related to several useful winners and looked a very progressive filly when scoring at Pontefract. Princess Caetani was suited by heavy ground at Newbury in October and is unlikely to get those conditions here.
