West Leake beat Spin Again at Lingfield and had Satwa Laird behind when runner-up at the same track a fortnight ago. He's a leading contender and makes more appeal than the other recent winner Teen Ager. Arachnophobia looks set to run a big race and Lutine Charlie is another to consider off his current mark. Duke Of Destiny could go well on his comeback but, while MIDNIGHT FEAST hasn't won since 2011 he's plummeted down the weights as a consequence. A close-up third over track and trip on his reappearance suggests he can score of today's rating and he gets the nod in a open race.
