DELIGHTFUL SLEEP had Outlaw Torn back in third when scoring by nearly three lengths over track and trip. An apprentice's allowance negates a rise in the weights and David Evans' charge can go in again. La Rosiere keeps threatening to lose her maiden tag without actually doing so and it could be a similar story today while Brown Pete remains way below his best despite slipping down the weights. Mr Chocolate Drop is another on the slide and Mojo Bear has the better recent form.
