Princess Cammie ran well for third behind Windforpower last week and is weighted to reverse running with the runner-up Marmot Bay. Devout looks thoroughly exposed, however, while Exit Clause and Malaysian Boleh were both well beaten on their respective handicap debuts. Better is expected from Gebayl on her handicap bow but the same comment applies to SPREADING. She was unfancied on her latest start over 7f here but showed up well until the closing stages and will be suited by today's shorter trip.
