POINT N SHOOT got his act together at Lingfield last week when returning an easy winner. Still unexposed, he can shrug off a 7lb penalty in this before the handicapper has his say. The Model County finally came good when scoring at Warwick recently but has been upped 8lb for that and Filatore looks a bigger threat having tumbled down the weights and just missing out at Ffos Las on his latest start. Sutter's Mill has gone close in this grade on more than one occasion but remains without a win.
