Sir Mark Prescott sent out the winner of this three times in a row from 2008. He runs SEVEN VEILS today and, although she's struggling to open her account, she remains unexposed and may finally do so in this modest company. Dropzone is no stable star either though a longer trip and soft ground are legitimate excuses for his latest poor effort while Eightfold beat a field of maidens including Hollywood All Star in a handicap at Lingfield last time and has been raised only 1lb as a consequence. Scarlet Prince and Grand Liaison may both figure stepping up in trip with preference for the latter as William Buick's on board.
