Brouhaha escapes a penalty for winning an apprentices' race at Haydock last week. He ran out an easy winner in the good to soft ground, but today's faster surface may catch him out and preference is for SCIAMPIN. He got off the mark at Salisbury last month with subsequent dual winner Royal Opera back in third and Marco Botti's charge is taken to defy the mandatory 6lb rise. Gala Casino Star never figured dropped back to 7f last time but is much more effective over today's distance, while Miss Blink appears to be still improving judged on last month's win on the turf at Lingfield. Sartingo looks best of the rest ahead of C&D winners Daaweitza and Smirfy's Silver.
