Gay Kelleway tries Cheektocheek in a visor after he disappointed in a three-runner affair in first-time blinkers here a fortnight ago. He finished half-a-length behind runner-up Mick Dundee on that occasion when receiving 8lb so it's very difficult to see him reversing the form with that rival on today's terms. John Hills' charge will probably attempt to make all and will take some catching but AMELIA HULL may be up to the task. She won at this level at Lingfield in November and dead-heated with her stablemate Salute To Seville in a handicap here three weeks ago. A repeat of that should be good enough as the remaining trio are either out of form or have shown nothing.
