PRIVATE EQUITY returned from a seven-month absence to finish a respectable second over 1m6f at Wolverhampton. Lightly-raced for his age, there should be more to come from Willie Jarvis' charge and he gets the vote. Dubburg's only win to date came back in 2008 but he's been in fair form at around this trip recently and Squad's second to the progressive Luck Of The Draw over C&D last time entitles him to consideration. Eagle Nebula has a poor strike rate but can make the frame.
