Prince Of Passion won a handicap over track and trip last time but faces a tougher task on today's terms, especially as SPITFIRE proved too good for him here back in November. The latter has since gone close again and also has the beating of Monnoyer on collateral form. Abi Scarlet is weighted to figure if rediscovering her best having tumbled down the weights but Greenhead High remains out of form. Formerly trained in Ireland, Tarrsille hasn't won since 2009 and showed little for his current yard last year.
