Like A Prayer shrugged off a penalty for an earlier win to score at Lingfield in February. He'll need to improve again to figure while Jeremos nosed his way to victory in a Kempton maiden race last time and will also find this tougher. D'Avignon appeared not to handle Epsom when sent off favourite on his return. He has something to prove now with blinkers applied for the first time and needing to reverse latest running with third-placed After The Goldrush. GANNICUS is penalised for winning at Bath but returned a cosy winner and he gets the vote to go in again now he's got his head in front.
