Verdict

Artful Prince has now won four of his last five and though having shot up the weights he still doesn't look badly treated with his penalty. Dubai Celebration has only won twice but is generally consistent and should be in the shake-up as should Jordaura, who has won nine times and very nearly made it ten at Carlisle last time. MISS ELLA JADE hasn't won since last July but is on the same mark here and looked ready to regain the winning thread with a very good effort at Southwell. May's Boy reappeared after a break to run very well behind Judicious at Carlisle and that should have brought him on enough to get involved.
