In depth


PRINCESS WAY has now won three of six outings at this venue. It was her first attempt at 1m2f when scoring over course and distance last month and there may be more to come from her over today’s trip. Albanita is fitted with first-time blinkers as she drops back down in trip having placed here earlier while Orange Suit improved on his first start after wind surgery when going close at Leicester. Junior Rip was beaten only a neck attempting to follow up a win at Chelmsford but has been raised a further 3lb for his trouble and Couldn't Could She has plenty to find with the selection.
