Welsh Inlet has decent claims back at this track only 3lb higher than when scoring over C&D last month. Michael's Nook posted a much better effort at Wolverhampton last time and is another leading contender but WEST LEAKE is just preferred. He went very close over track and trip recently and finally looks set to bring a losing streak to an end off his current mark. Spinning Ridge and Mambo Spirit have both tumbled down the weights without showing any benefit so far and Jackie Love looks high enough in the handicap now.
