Brigadoon resumed winning ways with a dominant success over this C&D six days ago, travelling strongly on the front end throughout and quickly drawing clear as the field turned into the straight. The quick turnaround is an obvious concern, but Brigadoon would appear to hold obvious claims if arriving in the same form under Silvestre de Sousa here and is fancied to defy a 6 lb penalty with a defeat of the consistent Eurato.
Whosyourhousemate showed plenty of ability when third on his racecourse debut at Lingfield, forced to deliver his challenge from further back than ideal after a slow start and doing extremely well in the circumstances to get within two and three-quarter lengths of the winner. He is entitled to improve with that initial experience under his belt and can see off the attentions of Magical Forest to open his account at the second attempt.
Kap Jazz showed improved form to get off the mark over fences at Carlisle last month and took another step forward when following up under a penalty at Ludlow last time. He has a further 6 lb hike in the weights to contend with here, but remains one to keep onside in his current mood and is taken to complete the hat-trick. Bindon Mill is also improving and can give the selection most to do this afternoon.
