Prince Tam is a standing dish here but he usually needs a run to put him straight and showed very little after scoring off a 21b lower mark over C&D in March. Pete needs holding up but could go close if everything fell right while Pumboo is only 1lb higher than when chasing home Carleton Place at Uttoxeter a month ago and he was ahead of the disappointing Authentic Act at Sedgefield earlier. TWICE LUCKY finally looked to be getting his act together when runner-up to Teenando at Carlisle in March. A repeat performance would probably suffice in this, though he is 6lb higher now.
