Outbid beat little to win a maiden over track and trip last time and PRINCE OF PROPHETS has the superior form. He won a handicap at Wolverhampton recently with plenty to spare and Stuart Williams' charge is taken to go in again in this company. Modern Lady and Tregereth were both placed on their latest starts but the less-exposed Ada Lovelace makes more appeal on her handicap debut. Catterick winner Iwilsayzisonlyonce makes his comeback with a 7lb claimer on board and could also go well.
