Underwritten has landed a couple of selling races this year but was well beaten on this surface in May. Irish Jugger makes more appeal on the Fibresand though he's 5lb higher than his latest win at the track in November. Proud Times finished closer on the Polytrack last time but the remainder all arrive out of sorts and BARNACLE is preferred. He looks to have a good chance of following up last month's course and distance victory in this modest company and Pat Eddery's charge gets the nod to defy a 4lb rise.
