Salvatore Fury scored at Hamilton last week and a 6lb penalty is unlikely to prevent another bold bid. His only rival on recent form looks to be stablemate SECRET ADVICE and he beat her a nose when they last met in June. But the latter is 8lb better off in this and after finding only one too good at Redcar on Sunday it could be her turn today. It's difficult to make any sort of case for the remainder unless Showtime Girl returns to form in first-time blinkers or Megaleka has one of his going days.
