Princess Lexi has yet to run anywhere near her best turf form in three starts on Polytrack and the same comment applies to Broughtons Paradis, who has produced nothing of note in four previous starts here. A chance is taken on SUPATOV who was unplaced in maiden company but finished third in a stakes race at Wolverhampton in November when stepped up in trip. There may be more to come from her now handicapping. Ocean Of Peace won at Lingfield last month and there is not much between him and Lunar River on recent running.
