Verdict

Keene scored over a shorter trip at Wolverhampton last time and is not certain to stay 1m4f. But it's no problem for Mick Duggan, who went close at the same track recently. Royal Marskell was only beaten a head in an amateurs' race here last month, though ECHO BRAVA looks to have the stronger form. He finished a close-up third in a higher grade handicap over course and distance a fortnight ago and can come out best in this with a similar effort. Mcbirney is back on a winning mark and is not out of this despite carrying top weight.
