CARAMELITA scored over track and trip last week beating a few of these in the process. She won by a cosy two lengths so a 6lb penalty may not be enough to prevent her following up. Amenable finished closest to the selection last time and re-opposes on better terms but Monnoyer, Ishiamiracle and Fathom Five have plenty to find and the latter was engaged to run at Wolverhampton yesterday. Captain Scooby handles the Fibresand and Somethingaboutmary has won over 5f here, but Shamrocked is having his first start on this surface having won three times on Turf.
