Jaconet has been in good form but he might be worth taking on today; we will do so with GAP PRINCESS who is preferred to Nomoreblondes. Richard Fahey's string are just beginning to hit form and the selection was a real eyecatcher over this course and distance last time. She has a good draw here and she can make it count. Jaconet is on the hat-trick mission here and she won well at Musselburgh last time. However, her low draw could make it difficult for her to dominate and on that basis we will pass her over. Nomoreblondes disappointed at Thirsk but she then bounced back with a much more encouraging effort at Ripon last time. She is another that has a poor draw, although she looks to have a better chance than her stablemate Dispol Kylie. An open race and Gap Princess could be the answer.
