Princess Tamay was due to compete in a Leopardstown handicap last night where she had more of a chance at the weights. BOGARDUS was conceding Calorie 5lb when they fought out a finish at Dundalk a couple of weeks ago. The winner had a bit in hand but with an 8lb turnaround in the weights it's Patrick Prendergast's charge who should come out on top this time.
