YOUNG PRINCE won a shade cosily at Kempton earlier this month and can follow-up here. He has a bit to find with Faraway at the weights but is expected to improve again. The latter is going the wrong way having won at Wolverhampton in September, though this is easier than his latest start at this track in a conditions race. The remaining pair have it all to do on today's terms with Le King Beau well clear of Liquid Sunshine on official ratings.
