Honoured landed a double here before going close again behind St Ignatius. He's upped another 3lb and Royal Alcor may reverse earlier running on better terms, though the latter had an engagement at Wolverhampton yesterday. Dame Nellie Melba's recent course and distance victory is working out well and she's preferred to stablemate My History, but LUV U WHATEVER makes most appeal in this. The latter won over 1m3f here early last year and made a winning comeback at Wolverhampton a fortnight ago. Still improving, Jo Hughes' charge gets the vote to go in again.
