Echo Brava has been threatening to score but remains 7lb higher than when last winning and was placed again at Brighton last time. WARRIGAL (NAP) returned to winning ways over 1m2f here earlier in the month and he gets the nod to find more improvement stepping up in trip. Dino Mite has been well beaten on Turf either side of dotting up at Southwell and it remains to be seen how she takes to this surface while Underwritten remains in decent form and should be thereabouts once again.
