Prospera continues to improve but is upped another 6lb for her latest win at Lingfield. Madame Vestris is less exposed though she's also been raised in the weights for finishing third at Chester last month. LISA'S LEGACY has gone up 8lb for his course and distance victory but he scored by five lengths on that occasion and may have one more win in him this year before the handicapper catches up. Grendisar, Portrait and Portmonarch will all need to dig a bit deeper off their current marks.
