Delightful Sleep went close in this lowly grade at Kempton last week and Under Par was beaten only a head over track and trip in similar company last time with a handful of today's opposition behind. FLEETWOODSANDS takes a drop in class and won here off a 15lb higher mark at this time last year. A claimer takes a further 7lb off his back today and Milton Bradley's charge looks to have every chance. Autumnus posted a better effort last time and Avon Supreme could make the frame.
