Griffin Point won at Chepstow on her penultimate start with Best One just behind in second and Little Perisher and Lithaam further back. She'll do well to confirm running on worse terms with the runner-up here and preference goes to PERFECT HONOUR. Des Donovan's mare was having only her second start since returning from a two and a half year absence when fourth at Brighton last time and is back on the same mark as when scoring over C&D in 2009. Sharp Bullet is difficult to win with and the remainder are hard to fancy.
