War Of Succession won over the course and distance on fast ground in September from 5lb higher and showed a bit more dash under tonight's rider at Brighton. King Athelstan will also enjoy the conditions, as he showed at Brighton on his penultimate start, and wasn't suited by good to soft at Windsor. Prerogative has a strike-rate of 1-35 but is now on his lowest ever mark but Coachella has yet to prove he stays this far. The three-year-old PERFECT GRACE hails from a trainer/jockey combination in excellent form and was making her handicap debut when just failing to hold off Sadlers Beach over this track and trip. She's 4lb higher but should go one better.
