PRINCE OF SORRENTO is up another 4lb after scoring by a neck over a mile at Kempton last month. However, he was a more convincing winner over C&D before that and Lee Carter's charge can go in again back over today's trip. Perfect Ch'I has found only one too good on her last couple of starts but may have missed her chance as she's gone back up in the weights now, while Secret Queen went close to ending her drought over 6f here last time, though she has a bit to prove over today's distance. Not My Choice and The Happy Hammer could figure but are hampered by high draws today.
