Piccolo Prince, Geojimali and Divine Spirit look the three to concentrate on here and the vote is given to Piccolo Prince. The selection was a little disappointing last time when finishing fifth behind Circuit Dancer at Catterick but the ground was quicker than ideal that day and with conditions more in his favour today he is taken to score. Geojimali won a banded race in good style last time and he gave the impression that there may be more to come from him. He is a strapping gelding and with his yard in good form he is definitely one to consider. Divine Spirit won well at Thirsk last time but that was over 5f and as that is his best trip we are happy to pass him over today. Rancho Cucamonga is a course and distance winner and is another to consider but for the winner we are happy to return to Piccolo Prince.
