Warning Fire beat Arletta Star over 7f at Doncaster recently but is 5lb higher today. The latter re-opposes on better terms and has subsequently placed again at Nottingham but NEVER BE ENOUGH is preferred. Keith Dalgleish’s filly had little chance in Listed company last time and ran accordingly but had scored at Hamilton earlier with Queen Penn back in fourth and looks to have every chance back at this level. Verdigris scored over track and trip back in May but remains 7lb higher.
