WELSH INLET is penalised for last week’s defeat of Prince of Time at Kempton but won with plenty to spare and can go in again. The latter finished clear of Chandrayaan and Catalyze while Bartholomew J posted his best effort by far when third at Wolverhampton on his recent handicap debut and can also figure.
