Amanda Perrett's team have never been the easiest to predict but with the handler back among the winners, it is hoped that JELLY FISH can regain the winning habit. The gelding produced an improved performance at Bath for the application of a tonguestrap and he is worth another try over the trip. Sunny Future is something of a standing dish at Salisbury having won this race last year and Richard Hughes was aboard when he recently notched a fifth victory at the track. Hughes is interestingly retained in the saddle when a claimer may have been used in an attempt to take off weight. Mallory Heights has been unable to reproduce his Polytrack form on Turf so the percentage call is that of opposition. Eton Rambler continues to creep up the weights without managing to get his head in front while Nave was narrowly beaten at Epsom on Thursday.
