AVAILABLE beat today's rival El McGlynn at Kempton in February and the latter has since scored over C&D. Jim Boyle's charge has struggled over 6f recently but the return to today's trip can see her back to winning ways and confirming superiority with her main challenger in the process. Thorpe Bay's only win to date came on the Fibresand and he's been out of sorts in similar company to this of late while the remainder have little chance on today's terms with My Name Is Sam probably the best of them.
