Serena Brotherton won this last year and Dew Reward scored on the Turf course here back in July. Epsom Salts ran well for today's amateur dropped back to 1m4f here last time. He finished ahead of both Opus and a below par BAAN, but the latter has won twice over today's longer trip this year and is taken to come out best on this occasion. The lightly-race Bethan may also figure and Entitlement is back on the same mark as when scoring at Kempton early in the year.
