ARCHINA scored over C&D last month. She's up 3lb but this looks an easier task if anything and Chris Wall's filly can go in again. Shore Performer isn't getting any closer but the handicapper has given her a chance by dropping her another 5lb while Brighton winner Scarlett Fever has a shout returning to a more suitable grade. Rhossili Bay has posted a couple of better efforts of late and has scope for further progress but Penang Pegasus was a big disappointment last time having won at Ayr before that.
