MON AMI JOLIE won on his racecourse debut over C&D before following up at Kempton. He found life tougher in soft ground at Ascot last time but, back in this company with an apprentice's 5lb allowance in his favour, he can return to winning ways. Ryan Style posted a better effort over 5f here last time and may figure and Dishy Guru wasn't far away at Goodwood last month. Chambles scored over 7f at this track back in June and is 4lb higher today but recent Catterick winner Drive Home is upped 9lb higher for his return to the all-weather.
