Analysis

Lucinda Russell wastes no time bringing out PRINCE TAM under a penalty after the seven-year-old gained a decisive victory on heavy ground at Newcastle last week. That was his first success in 18 career starts but he's still on an attractive racing weight and can follow up. Sun Tzu started favourite when unshipping his rider at Uttoxeter last month before running well over three miles at Market Rasen. He's likely to find this on the short side and stablemate Folie A Deux, a winner over this trip at Warwick last month before two subsequent runs over much further, could prove more of a threat. Pamak D'Airy hasn't been in the best of form but the last time he won a race was from a 5lb higher mark and he's no forlorn hope.
