Speightowns Kid was winning for only the second time when successful over 6f at Wolverhampton and faces a different test off a 5lb higher mark here. Roy's Legacy makes more appeal despite carrying a penalty for last week's C&D victory but the likes of Welease Bwian and Danzoe look high enough in the weights at present. Mother Jones scored at Wolverhampton last month and had earlier beaten PUCON at Brighton but the latter has scope for improvement and the C&D winner is taken to reverse running on her return from a layoff.
