MEMPHIS MAN was well beaten on Fibresand on Tuesday but is given another chance here. He scored over C&D last week and is fancied to confirm running with Ad Vitam, Weetentherty, Young Simon and Poppet's Joy. Yungaburra also makes a quick reappearance and really should have done better than seventh in a Grade 7 handicap at Kempton on Wednesday, but Little Perisher looks to have claims on last month's second over C&D. Metropolitan Chief has been in better form of late and is another to consider.
