On Her Way is tempting as she was a progressive filly last term, has seemingly ideal conditions and is the sort that Luca Cumani handles to perfection. However, she is reluctantly passed over, having not seen the racetrack since last August. She's one to keep on the right side nevertheless. Dolphin Rock is consistency personified and must land a decent handicap sooner or later but VOODOO PRINCE is well worth another chance off an appealing mark. He was supported into favouritism for his Sandown handicap bow after a stylish win here but things simply didn't go his way. He'll be more streetwise as a consequence and will almost certainly prefer this faster ground. Kensei is also better than he showed last time.
