Dandy came up just short at Bath and then at Lingfield last time having dropped back to a winning mark. But he's gone back up the weights after those placed efforts and ECO WARRIOR is just preferred. The latter continued his good progress with victory at Bath last month and John Hills' charge should go close again. Aint Got A Scooby has a bit to find with Dandy on latest running while Compton Bird is 8lb higher than her win at Kempton in March. Shanti was tailed off in soft ground over 1m4f on his return and better is expected from the previous Wolverhampton runner-up while Bison Grass and Lady Of Yue are others likely to improve.
