Room For A View won her maiden over C&D back in November and may the need the outing for a stable struggling for winners and PRINCE OF THEBES makes more appeal. He showed signs of a return to form when runner-up at Lingfield last month and can race off a 9lb lower mark than when last winning. Madame Boot has shown improved form this year and scored at Southwell last time though she's perfectly at home on Polytrack, while Clearing House looks likely to make another bold bid. Crinan Classic has scope for improvement and could prove best of the rest.
