Genes Of A Dancer won over a mile here on his latest start and should be thereabouts again despite a 6lb rise. However, this looks no tougher than the race DICHOH won here a week ago, also over a mile, and he has the advantage of having proven form over today's shorter trip. He's just preferred on that basis, although Hierarch should also make race of it judged on his recently improved efforts on the turf. Princess Willow is lightly-raced and open to improvement on her handicap debut, but Atia has a bit to prove back over today's distance.
