ROYAL PRIZE is the only previous winner on show. He scored over 7f here last month but is related to middle-distance winners including Group 3 winner Gold Medallist and can follow-up on his handicap bow. Stiff Upper Lip had both Lady Marmelo and Heliconia behind when third at Bath last week and should be thereabouts while the latter had earlier finished ahead of Alpine Mysteries over a shorter trip at this track. Shooting Jacket may improve for the longer distance but needs to if he's to figure and the same applies to Abraq.
