Kames Park can race off a lower mark back on the turf. He finished third over 1m4f at Beverley back in August and has won twice before over today's longer trip. However, a tentative vote goes to ROYAL PREMIER, who hasn't been in the best of form of late but he scored over C&D back in July and is 3lb lower today. Delorain has claims on his best efforts on the all-weather and the same comment applies to Prickles, while Irish import Sainglend may be capable of better on his first start for new connections.
