UNDERWRITTEN proved suited to the step up to 2m when dotting up by eight lengths over track and trip last week. A 6lb penalty is unlikely to prevent him going again and John Weymes' charge can confirm superiority with runner-up Outback. Baan is another course and distance winner but he was well beaten off today's mark at Lingfield last time and Dr Finley makes more appeal on his recent placed efforts over 1m6f here.
