Prince James is up 3lb for January's win over track and trip but should be in the mix again while Abhaath is usually thereabouts at this level without being quite good enough. Rio Cobolo continues to slide down the handicap and will have come on for his recent reappearance at Southwell while Marshall Art's only win so far came at the same track in February. Victorian Bounty has the past form to figure if back to his best but a chance is taken on GLENRIDDING, who has gone well fresh before and returns to action on a winning mark.
