It can be a risky business transferring Turf form to the all-weather but ILLUSTRIOUS PRINCE is undeniably well treated racing off a pound lower mark than when scoring by almost four lengths at Redcar last week and Luke Leadbitter again takes off 7lb. He must take all the beating though Bapak Muda is another arriving in good form from the Turf and makes more appeal than The Mongoose, who is probably high enough in the weights at present. Four Winds only won a claimer at Kempton but Khajaaly has hinted at a revival for his new yard and could reward each-way support if in the mood.
