Bairam and Echion have already met twice and the score is 1-1. The latter had the edge last time and could do so again but there's very little between them and the form looks nothing special. John Best's Elounta is related to plenty of winners and her trainer does well with similar types but the one who catches the eye on breeding is RELATED. He's a half-brother to the classy Wootton Bassett and several other winning sprinters and should have enough pace to make a winning start.
