AMELIA'S SURPRISE followed up her C&D maiden win with a victory at Lingfield when last seen at the track in April. She goes well fresh and is likely to have improved in the interim. Michael Bell's filly is preferred to Justbookie Dot Com, who went close to landing a hat trick when third here last week. Song Of The Siren has decent claims on her best form, though she is starting to look hard to win with, while Point Du Jour could make the frame and Spin Cast is worth noting on his belated reappearance.
