Elna Bright's long losing streak continues despite slipping down the weights and he's dropping back down to 5f in the hope of improvement. But INDIAN TINKER looks a better bet to come good after also tumbling down the handicap as he went close at Leicester a fortnight ago. Robert Cowell's charge can finally get his head back in front in this modest company. Welease Bwian found only one too good over track and trip last week but was a beaten favourite in a ladies' race at Leicester on Thursday evening and is very difficult to win with.
