All of PRINCE TAM's win have come here and, though worse off at the weights, he can confirm recent C&D running with old rival Transact and Ice Image and score again today as the ground is still in his favour. The other pair are both racing from out of the handicap and haven't shown enough to suggest they can get involved.
