Presumido has been raised 8lb since September though he's yet to get his head in front. But GREGORI got off the mark at Wolverhampton last month with Powerful Pierre, a subsequent hat-trick winner, back in third and he looks capable of going in again on that form. Compton Prince scored by a neck over 5f at Bath in September and will find this tougher while better was expected of Verus Delicia at Wolverhampton last time having gone close on the Turf before that. Dreamy Ciara is another with more on her plate having been placed in a seller here recently.
