Most of these arrive with a chance. Tapis Libre and Epsom Salts have won the previous two renewals of this contest and both are back on winning marks. Jewelled beat Sagesse and Hi Note in a blanket finish at Brighton last week while Echo Brava and Nave were beaten less than a length on their latest starts at Bath and this track respectively. But LAST MINUTE LISA escapes a penalty for winning an apprentice race over 1m2f here last week and she gets the nod expected to improve further over this longer distance.
