Starlight Princess could only manage third off today's mark last time. She beat PLOUGH BOY and My My My Diliza over 7f here before that, but Willie Musson's charge is fancied to reverse running on better terms over this longer trip. Rose Buck has been placed in plating races of late but will find this tougher, while the likes of Dutchartcollector and Black Sceptre are worth noting making their handicap debuts. Chanceuse never threatened the winner when third at Wolverhampton last time and it could be a similar story here.
