JUST ONE KISS has been shrewdly campaigned this year. Left on the same mark after winning a maiden at this track last month, she's also unpenalised for following-up in an apprentice's race at Kempton last week. The hat-trick beckons for Lady Cecil's filly today. Both Flamborough Breeze and Club House look to be treading water off their current marks, but the same could have been said of Shaolin before he popped-up at Kempton last time. High Time Too could be more consistent but has a shout on December's second over track and trip while Captain Starlight is another to consider after a promising comeback at Kempton three weeks ago.
