Kandinski has only found one too good in all four bumper starts. He was only beaten a length over course and distance last month, when Rightdownthemiddle was a distant third, and his run behind Simonsig at Fairyhouse a couple of years ago has been well advertised. There are races to be won with him but maybe not today as JAZZ CONCERTO, a half-brother to the very smart Flat and hurdles winner Jazz Messenger, is the subject of favourable reports and can make a winning debut under Nina Carberry. Tom Mullins' What Present is another newcomer to note and preferred to Thurles third Makethedifference of the others.
