Well beaten despite being prominent in the betting at Newmarket last time, PETRIFY won't get may better opportunities than this. Luca Cumani's charge gets the nod on his earlier third at Leicester while Princess Spirit also has leading claims on last month's placed effort over track and trip. Zaheeb remains out of sorts and Knight Charm has yet to show any benefit for his slide down the weights. Loraine has an outside chance on her second at Salisbury back in June but the rest are hard to fancy.
