Taro Tywod will need to improve again if she's to defy a 6lb rise for scoring at Bath last week. YORKSTERS PRINCE is preferred as he won a claimer at this track before finishing third at Newcastle on his latest start. He can confirm superiority with Tropical Duke and follow-up. The remainder make little appeal on their recent form though Cross The Boss has been placed on a couple of occasions this year and Maggie Mey found only one too good at Thirsk last month but that was over 7f.
