Strait Of Zanzibar was on a long losing run before scoring at Down Royal and could have done without a 5lb rise for a short-head victory. Back in third was Reckless Lad and he looked a bit unlucky so should take his revenge on these terms. Doc Holliday has been mainly confined to Polytrack and though he did finish runner-up here last July he's on a 13lb higher mark. C'Est Ma Souer beat a huge field over this trip at the Curragh in October and is just 4lb higher but LILY'S PRINCE looks the one to be on. He was conceding 13lb to subsequent winner Pixie Spirit over 6f here last month and he's scored over this trip previously so looks set to follow up. Amazing Star has won just once from 40 starts on Turf while David Marnane tries Hi Emperor in blinkers for the first time.
