Prince Alzain has been competing in Group races but is 8lb higher than last year's victory at this track as he returns to handicapping. STRICTLY SILVER makes more appeal as he's been running well in competitive handicaps on the Turf and also scored at this course earlier in the season. Chookie Royale was engaged to run at Kempton last night but has the beating of Sound Advice while Alfred Hutchinson has to race off a 7lb higher mark back on Polytrack. Party Royal was well beaten when tried in this grade back in August and steps up in distance today.
