Verdict

Polish Crown went close when sent of favourite at Wolverhampton last time and is preferred to stablemate and handicap debutant Irish Dream. Lingfield winner Spithead may figure off his current mark on his reappearance but Princess In Exile steps up in trip for her return. Sakhees Romance is open to improvement but so is SILKELLY. She ended last season with victory over 6f at Thirsk and this extra furlong should suit as David O'Meara's filly goes handicapping for the first time.
