Verdict

Princely Hero battled on strongly to score at Warwick but that was over 3m2f and he may find this on the short side. Cypress Grove has won three times in his career, all on this track. He appears to like a bit of cut in the ground so connections will be hoping for rain. MIDNIGHT CHARMER completed a double in October and didn't run badly when stepped up a grade at Wetherby so he's given the vote with his young rider's claim a bonus.
