TARRACO is likely to be a short price having jumped well and won in a canter at Plumpton six days ago. A penalty shouldn't prevent a follow up if Venetia Williams' French import is in the same mood here. Glenwood Prince is a consistent sort at this level and should have each-way claims again but the handicapper still has a grip on Chasers Chance. Tom Bach won over the course and distance in October and didn't have much luck in-running when favourite at Towcester a month later but hasn't been seen since.
