Verdict

S W Briar Rose has been in fine form in 2018, winning three of her five starts. However, preference is for SOUPER ECHO, who scooted clear to land her second win in a row last time and she can complete the hat-trick here. Shacklefords Lady and Aunt Rose have both rattled the bar of late and are others to note.
