Media Jury was a shock winner in lesser company here last week and is by no means certain to confirm running with either Hold The Star and Aljosan who finished less than two lengths behind. KIELTY'S FOLLY has shown up to better effect of late with a couple of placed efforts at the track and it could be his turn today having slipped down the weights. Lieutenant Dan has also been in better form recently and is another to consider in an uninspiring contest.
