Questeq appears to be heading in the right direction and is a must for the shortlist, while the consistent Missimard is also respected. However, preference is for ACORN STREET, who was a winner over half-a-furlong extra two starts back and, despite disappointing last time, looks capable of bouncing back.

DISCO PARTNER had both Pocket Change (fifth) and Blind Ambition (seventh) behind when landing a Grade 2 contest over 6f here last month and, with stepping back up in trip no concern, he might be able to complete the double. There are plenty of dangers, however, with Mr Havercamp and Projected topping the list.

Verdict

A chance is taken on TROFFISSIO, who ran much better on debut than the bare result suggests and tonight's assignment is a fair bit easier. Trinni Ninja and Posse's Paradise are others to consider.
