It's difficult to have much confidence in any of these. Kielty's Folly popped up at Kempton in September but has immediately reverted to his more usual modest efforts. Amelia Jay has been in better form over 6f here of late but LEGAL EAGLE finished ahead of Coastal Passage and Interchoice Star over the same trip at this track last time. The former has tumbled down the weights in the past year and gets the speculative vote to bring his long losing run to an end.
