Golden Jubilee showed a bit more over a longer trip at Bath last time and King's Road finished well ahead of the inconsistent Penang Pegasus when third in soft ground at Lingfield recently. PRINCESS WILLOW faded badly in the closing stages of the same race at Lingfield but had found only one too good over course and distance before that. John Long's mare gets a tentative vote to come out best today as only Capriska makes any appeal of the remainder with Richard Hughes taking over the reins.
