POETIC PRINCESS is thoroughly exposed and hasn't managed a win on Turf so far but Jo Hughes' filly has been successful over this trip on Fibresand which suggests she'll have no problems with the soft ground here. Richard Hughes prefers Intrigo to Equitissa but neither of the Hannon runners have shown much so far while Sojoum has been beaten in sellers lately. Beverley fourth Beautifulwildthing appears to be improving with experience, however, and isn't badly treated on her handicap debut despite top weight. She shouldn't be far away.
