The ground has come right for BROUGHTONS SWINGER, who won over this trip on similar going at Warwick in October and ran a lot better than the result suggests on his reappearance at Sandown. Sure to strip fitter here and with an accomplished apprentice in the plate, Willie Musson's four-year-old can get off the mark for the season. Major Eradicator won at Brighton last month and makes far more appeal than stablemate Diddums over this trip, but Dancing Primo has more to do than when scoring at Bath. Iguacu is only 3lb higher than when winning at Goodwood, however, and should finish ahead of Kempton second Bubbly Braveheart in this grade.
