A nice prize for a Monday afternoon’s racing so no surprise to see a couple of powerful Newmarket yards represented. Zwayyan is upped 6lb for winning at Haydock but the Haggas gelding should go well again while ZABEEL PRINCE makes his handicap debut after landing a maiden race at Nottingham on his recent reappearance when giving plenty of weight to younger horses. Roger Varian’s charge may just edge this. Just Hiss is turned out quickly after a good effort at York last Saturday while Hibou was well ahead of Nicholas T when scoring at Hamilton and the latter had earlier beaten Sophie P over track and trip. Carnageo is upped in class on the back of a success at Carlisle while Century Dream scored at Doncaster last month.
