Jubilee Brig has yet to win on Turf but ran a fine race in a valuable contest at Ascot nine days ago, when Lord Of The Dance was behind, and has won over 1m on Polytrack. Kuwait Star is bidding for a hat-trick after victories here and at Haydock and can't be ignored, despite the step up in grade. Fast Finian only won a claimer at Hamilton last month, however, and Talent Scout only won by a nose over course and distance last month and is 5lb higher now. SILVER RIME has been keeping decent company this year. The grey was below his best at Newcastle last time but has bounced back from similar setbacks in the past and this looks a lot easier. Another For Joe may be in the handicapper's grip again for now.
