Bold Ring won twice over C&D in November and is not easily overlooked after another good effort at Wolverhampton last time. She has the beating on that form of the likes of Lastkingofscotland and Silvee, though Eager To Bow is weighted to reverse running and may well do so. However, a punt is taken on the returning PATAVIUM PRINCE as he scored over C&D in March and has made the frame in all four starts this year. Silver Wind and Sasheen are others to consider with the latter wearing blinkers for the first time today.
