SUNLEY PRIDE never figured in better company at Epsom last time but had gone close at Kempton before that. He had today's rival Compton Prince just behind on that occasion and is taken to come out best again in this. Joshua The First can get involved off his current mark and My Own Way Home was placed over 6f here last month. The remainder are mostly out of sorts with Dance The Rain and Master Of Ages having the past form to figure if back to their best.
