BORU'S BROOK will likely start a short-price for this. He's joined Jim Best since finishing runner-up at Punchestown on his debut and that's the best form on offer. Carmino was placed on the Turf at Southwell in April and makes more appeal than Westbrooke while Watcombe Heights, a half-brother to a winning chaser, may prove best of the newcomers.
