Sabys Gem had Avonlini behind when scoring over C&D last month and should go well again while both Memphis Man and Avonvalley are capable of popping up in this grade on their day. Sleights Boy went close when runner-up on his reappearance over track and trip and has to come into the reckoning, though the winner ALMATY EXPRESS is taken to confirm superiority. The latter was scoring for an incredible 16th time at this track last time and may not have finished yet as John Weymes' charge remains on a winning mark despite a 3lb rise.
