Plenty with claims in the closing event. Welsh Inlet has been in fine form in lesser grade handicaps and scored at Kempton last time while Hierarch has gone close the last twice and is not easily overlooked. Dunn'o is harder to fancy but Jack My Boy is another threatening to get his head in front. For Shia And Lula ran below par at Wolverhampton on Monday when behind third-placed RESTLESS BAY and the latter gets another chance in this as Conor Dore's charge was been beaten only a short-head over track and trip earlier this month and remains on a winning mark.
