CWMNI returned from a short break with a good effort behind Florio Vincitore over C&D. She just failed to catch the winner on that occasion and looks to have every chance of going one better in this company. Charles Darwin also went close here last time when runner-up to Spin Again and he can confirm superiority with Ivory Lace, who was back in seventh. Patavium Prince has a shout judged on last year's best form on the turf, but Batchworth Blaise looks a shade high in the weights now.
