Ivor's Princess has a preferred entry at Leicester but would have an obvious chance if re-routed here as she won very easily when completing a Salisbury double last week. Cardinal is another on a hat-trick and he looks sure to go well, though he has nothing in hand of Lady Bayside on their run at Windsor earlier this month. Midnight Rider started favourite that day and wasn't beaten far after failing to obtain a clear run so he's another with a chance. ROCKET ROB had dropped to a very low mark when dead-heating with the in-form Valmina at Bath and, with only a 2lb rise to contend with, he's taken to complete the double.
