PRINCE OF SORRENTO has been in terrific for this year, winning four times before his latest second to Fennell Bay in soft ground at Sandown. He's up another 5lb but the latter followed up at Ascot last week and Lee Carter's charge is preferred to recent Doncaster winner Swiftly Done, who had Al Muheer well behind last time. Top weight Memory Cloth looks a real threat dropping back to a mile and Colour Guard has claims if running up to his best form, as does Dubai Dynamo, but Suits Me is out of sorts at present.
