COMADOIR's recent run at this track has been well advertised and he's fancied to build on that in a tight sprint where Make My Dream and Vhujon are amongst those that merit close consideration. The selection was having his first outing since March when narrowly beaten into third over a fractionally longer trip and the form looks rock solid with the winner in form at the time and the second and third running well since. Comadoir is able to race from the same mark and can make every yard. Vhujon has recaptured some of his sparkle of late and should be involved if handling the track which is of no concern to Make My Dream who has finished in the money on five of his nine visits here but he's still 2lbs above his highest winning mark so may need a little more help from the assessor. None of the three course and distance winners - Littlemisssunshine, Multahab and Magical Speedfit - can be comfortably ruled out but Comadoir is taken to show them a clean pair of heels.
