Verdict

Ethics Girl beat the re-opposing Barwick a short-head at Epsom and that pair are closely matched. Echo Brava finished runner-up in an amateurs race at Epsom last time when HI NOTE was well beaten. But the latter was placed over track and trip before that and gets a speculative vote to return to form. Compton Bird is yet another with form at Epsom having won easily over 1m2f while the likes of El Bravo, Marzante, Men Don't Cry and Whinging Willie can also be given a chance in an impossible handicap to fathom.
