Dovil's Duel is not certain to be suited by the drop back to the minimum trip after recording a double over 6f. But PRISCA is excused a below par effort at Brighton last time as she'd gone close to catching stablemate La Tinta Bay at Windsor before that. The latter has subsequently won a handicap and the third-placed horse has also gone in since. Richard Hannon's filly can reverse Brighton running with Stellarta and come out best. Leicester winner Anytimeatall steps up a grade under a penalty and Narborough takes on better company after going close over track and trip but Black Vale could figure on his handicap bow and first start on Turf.
