Boughtforasong lost her maiden tag at the 22nd time of asking three weeks ago when she stayed on strongly to catch Catwilldo over 6f. She has no problems with another furlong and should get into the frame. Lily's Prince stormed to victory off a very fast pace a fortnight ago but a 7lb rise looks harsh and Stoichkhov, who was behind but had beaten him earlier, has a decent pull in the weights as does runner-up Sweet Annathea, who had previously finished close up behind Boughtforasong. MR BOUNTY had been threatening to win a race before being sent to Kempton last week and landing a moderate handicap. His extra weight is wiped out by Gary Halpin's claim and he's taken to complete a quick double.
