Schindler's Prince stayed on strongly to complete the hat-trick here three weeks ago and, despite worse terms, can confirm that running with fourth Degooch, who is probably better over shorter trips, and sixth Distracted. Big Sound does most of his winning at Uttoxeter but arrives in fine form while Allow Dallow will be winning again soon and would be a threat to all if the rains arrived in time. FOR 'N' AGAINST also has every chance having been beaten under a length off this mark at Worcester last week so gets the nod in a competitive handicap.
