Like the rest of today's field, COMADOIR is a rare winner nowadays but is only 1lb higher than when scoring at Brighton in June. He posted a better effort when third here last month and gets a tentative vote. Dorothy's Dancing has slipped down the weights and it would be no surprise to see her figure while Gypsy Rider is usually thereabouts at this level. Chjimes is capable when he's in the mood but Imaginary Diva has done all her winning over the minimum trip so far.
