Last month's Kempton winner WELSH INLET ran well again when third here on Thursday behind Jack My Boy. She's dropping down a grade for this which could see John Bridger's mare back to winning ways. Amis Reunis beat today's rival Cuthbert a length over track and trip last week and there's little between that pair while Rose Garnet has gone very close on her last three starts and won't be winning out of turn. Spinning Ridge is another on the verge of winning and can also be given a chance.
