MEMPHIS MAN popped up in an apprentice race at Windsor last week and so escapes a penalty for this quick reappearance. Matthew Cosham keeps the winning partnership intact and he can go in again. Welcome Approach may appreciate this return to 6f but was still expected to do better over the minimum trip last time, while Millden, Volito and Bermondsey Bob all have claims if fully wound-up for their return to action. Bolindor looks in the handicapper's grip now and Loyal Royal has just the one win in 27 starts on turf.
