Wolverhampton: Dusky Prince
Well-backed at Newcastle and was going smoothly until badly chopped on the rail by a drifting horse in-front. Probably would have won the race and this is the compensation.
Dusky Prince only managed to finish 6th at Newcastle but doesn’t go close to telling the story of the race. Travelling comfortably behind the pace, it looked like Hollie Doyle was going to power up the rail to win, expect Clifford Lee let his mount drift across severely hampering Dusky Prince; it looked bad on TV and led to a suspension for Lee.
Off the same mark and in a race that is no more difficult to win Dusky Prince should be able to gain compensation fairly easily.
