MEDAM is enjoying a new lease of life and followed-up a victory at Kempton with a win over track and trip last month. Only 2lb higher for this, a hat-trick looks on the cards for Shaun Harris' mare. Sweet Vintage is now 7lb higher than when winning at Kempton in October but she still went close at this track last time and the veteran Glenridding can pop-up at this level when the mood takes him. One Way Or Another is a multiple winner on the Polytrack but remains out of sorts despite sliding down the weights.
