Jubilee Brig couldn't prevent the progressive Jamesbo's Girl from landing a hat-trick at Goodwood last Saturday. He should go very close here with a similar effort, however, as he beat Three Crowns over 5f at the track in June. LONDON CITIZEN also drops in class for his handicap debut having run well for a long way over 7f in the Superlative Stakes at Newmarket last time. Elaine Burke's C&D winner is fancied to land this with William Buick taking over the reins. The remainder have some catching up to do but Lingfield winner Stupenda is going the right way and Blazing Knight went close at Windsor on his penultimate start.
