Pool House finally got his head in front when winning a maiden here a week ago. He's more exposed than First Experience, who beat the re-opposing Bint Malyana a neck in a handicap at Wolverhampton last month. With the latter pair hard to separate, AMAHORO makes most appeal in this. A winner over 5f in October, she's a sister to a winner over today's trip and Mick Channon's yard has sent out three winners at this track in the last few days.
Pool House 4-9fav (8-12) Tracked leaders, ridden and went 2nd just over 1f out, ran on inside final furlong, led post, won at Kempton 6f mdn auc stks (5) pol in Jan beating Taquka (8-12) by ns, 6 ran.
