Plenty can be given a chance including Golden Amber, fourth on her return to action in better company at Kempton. Harwoods Volante went close at the same track last time though he's now is now 11lb higher than his latest win. Three D Alexander took his time to get off the mark and beat nothing over 5f here last week while stablemate Vodka Time finished last of five on his return from a lengthy absence. Drive On is not without a chance, but a speculative vote goes the way of Kempton winner NATIONAL SERVICE, as Stuart Williams' charge is expected to improve for the step up to 6f.
