Verdict

Richard Newland turns out Anton Dolin again quickly after his second over 2m here on Sunday. He'll be fancied to go one better over this extra half-mile but he does have a fair bit to find with PRINCESS FLEUR on earlier course and distance running so Michael Scudamore's mare gets the nod ahead of the consistent Asian Prince and Chosen Dream, who possibly needs a bit further than this. Ffos Las third Maggie Aron is lightly raced and has place claims again but none of the others make much appeal.
