DARK AMBER has the best form in the book after a couple of placed efforts over longer trips. He gets a tentative vote in a poor maiden. White Peak has shown little so far and also drops back in trip while Pucker Up moves in the opposite direction having returned a disappointing favourite over 6f at Windsor. The remainder with experience have shown no worthwhile form as of yet so it would be no surprise if the newcomer Leonard Thomas, a half-brother to a couple of winners, made his presence felt.
