Ballyvoneen ran well over a shorter trip yesterday and can't be ignored here back over his favourite course and distance if turning out again. Princely Hero is a Fontwell specialist, however, and has been struggling around there lately. QUAYSIDE COURT won off a higher mark at Towcester just over a year ago. There's a good chance he'll be allowed an easy lead in this and he can get back to winning ways, as Volio Vincente was well behind Get Ready To Go and Ballyvoneen at Warwick last month.
