really want to get my foot in the door with amex.
6 new accounts in the past 6 months.

YMMV but I would age some of those INQ's for at least 6 months
EX has a lot of INQ's and Amex pulls EX in most cases

I think the Chase accounts showing may hurt your chances. On the other hand nothing negative since 2009 is a positive.

Id say low but with scores like that and the 6 new accounts, 1 more INQ won't hurt you... You need to garden for 12 months rather you get amex or not... so go ahead and apply... but approved or denied... GARDEN after that!
