PERCY PROSECCO has now won two of only five starts since switching to Archie Watson’s yard having landed one of these events under Brodie Hampson at Catterick last time. He’s taken to shrug off a penalty and go in again. Tour de Paris has a shout on his course and distance form but hasn’t raced since April while Fern Owl won over 1m4f here last month and scored over hurdles at Stratford last week under Alice Haynes. Yasir should be noted with a leading amateur on board while Earthly went close under today’s rider at Haydock on his penultimate start.
