THE OSTEOPATH returned to winning ways dropped into plating company at Carlisle last time. This is no tougher and John Davies' veteran can go in again. Conry has had easier opportunities in claimers this season without taking advantage but Whispered Times has a shout on today's terms having finished a close-up fifth in a handicap here last time. Megamunch drops in class for this and could prove best of the remainder.
