Amitola would be the selection if running but she was engaged in yesterday's Ayr Silver Cup, while Coolminx and Jeannie Galloway look even less likely to take part having finished first and second in the Bronze Cup at Ayr on Friday - but have obvious claims if they turn up. It looks as though the handicapper has caught up with Red Roar and a winner's penalty could prevent Grandmas Dream from following up her Kempton victory. Spinatrix has been winning in lower grade races so LADY PARIS is preferred. She registered last month's double on fast ground, but won her maiden on soft going last year and appeared not to stay the 7f at York last time.
