Prince Of Prophets produced his best effort over the minimum trip at Kempton in October and back over 5f today, he makes more appeal than Twinwood Star. Lexi's Beauty finished a bit closer over 6f here last time and Scoobys Girl is open to improvement on her first start since September. But the same comment also applies to LADY CALANTHA as she posted a much better effort in a seller on fast ground over 5f at Musselburgh last time. She meets lower-rated rivals on her return and gets a tentative vote.
