SOPRAN NAD has got his act together now and won two of his last three starts. His latest cosy win came on the Fibresand, but he handles this surface and can follow up in this company under a penalty. Concrete Jungle went close on his handicap debut at Carlisle last week and can figure, while it's unlikely we've seen the best of West Side yet. Jonnie Skull makes a quick reappearance after his third at Folkestone on Sunday and he makes more appeal than Miss Firefly, who was second in a seller last time.
