Verdict

Collect Art escapes a penalty after winning an apprentice race over 6f at Catterick on Wednesday but this is tougher and others make more appeal. Eastern Gift landed a double on the Polytrack last month but is not out of this judged on last year's win at Nottingham, while Princess Lexi is only 3lb higher than when scoring over C&D last summer. However, SUNRISE LYRIC, who never figured in three starts on Polytrack over the winter, won her maiden here before that and this return to turf is expected to bring out the best in Paul Cole's filly.
