Sir Mark Prescott boasts an impressive strike rate at this venue but the yard isn't in the best of form and Inherited looks worth taking on with HENPECKED. The latter has improved with each step up in distance and further progress is expected on her handicap debut. Polar Forest makes more appeal than the equally-exposed Bahamamay while Aramist did better when dropped back to a mile last time so has something to prove in this.
