Verdict

Prince Tom is lightly-raced for his age and jumped really well when beating the frustrating Battle Group on his fencing bow at Newton Abbot. But he may struggle to concede 7lb to the mare IXORA, who was his equal over hurdles and just as impressive over the larger obstacles at Huntingdon last month. Lion On The Prowl was third over a longer trip here four weeks ago and should find a small race over fences while Geneva Geyser will have needed his run at Kempton in April and has won twice here over timber and five times on the Flat.
