Jo Hughes landed the Lily Agnes Stakes at Chester this week and Caledonia Prince's form figures suggest he has a good chance of adding to that prestigious success. However, he seems far and away much better at Southwell than anywhere else and MYRAID is preferred representing the in-form Ruth Carr team. He only has five turf runs to his name in a light career to date and may have more to offer. Join Up will be suited by trip and ground and should get in the shake-up, as will Sky Diamond if putting his best foot forward.
