SHAUNAS SPIRIT scored over C&D last time under today's apprentice. This doesn't look any tougher and Dean Ivory's filly is taken to go in again confirming running with Blue Deer and subsequent winner Abriachan in the process. Douze Points is usually thereabouts at this level without being quite good enough and Tiradito has yet to show any improvement for his tumble down the weights. Gallantry and Casa Bex could make the frame in this company, however, as could Conducting if taking part but he was engaged to run here yesterday.
