Based on his win over course and distance when there was some cut in the ground in April HIGHLAND WARRIOR looks off a fair mark. Paul Midgley's runner looked back to form on his last run when finding just one too good and if building on that should go close. Bravely was a comfortable winner two starts back but was held off this mark last time while Sandwith will need to improve to get the better of the pick after there last meeting. Highland Warrior should score.
