Ralph Beckett’s horses are running particularly well at the minute so a big run is expected from Prince Alex.
This 4-y-o gelding rattled off an impressive 5-timer last season working his way through the handicap ranks and he is subsequently racing off a mark of 86.
He returned to Salisbury for his first run off that rating at the start of May and although well beaten in fourth he shaped as though there are still races to be won.
He rallied well inside the final stages of the race but he had the look of a horse that needed the run therefore he is expected to improve significantly for that effort.
The forecast rain will suit him and Jason Watson has been booked to ride.
