Whistling Buddy has been placed in all three starts and will surely be winning a similar event soon after his latest length defeat at Bath. JUST CHARLIE ran up to a similar level on his debut over C&D in June with a subsequent winner behind and Henry Candy's charge gets the nod to open his account ahead of Nordikhab. The latter started a short price at Hamilton last time but floundered in the soft ground and better is expected here. Proventi and Vestibule may struggle as they drop back in trip but it would be no surprise if Reinvigorate improves on her debut fourth at Ffos Las.
