Verdict

ITOLDYOU beat West Cork Flash by eight lengths over a shorter trip here last month. It's difficult to see the runner-up reversing the form despite more favourable terms and a bigger danger to Linda Jewell's charge may be Ringa Bay. He's had his ups and downs this season but is only a couple of pounds higher than for his latest win. Princely Hero is a regular here but has finished tailed off in his last three starts at the track and will be waiting for better ground.
