Northside Prince has tumbled down the weights but a poor effort at this course in August doesn't boost confidence. Ever Fortune has won in heavy ground and may take to the surface while multiple course winner Mediterranean Sea has yet to win off a mark as high as today's. Honoured won a claimer over 1m3f here last time and should figure again, but it could pay to stick with the consistent GOLDEN JUBILEE. A winner at Kempton recently, he finished runner-up over track and trip earlier in the year and looks up to going one better in this.
