Breden was backed into favouritism for an end-of-season Doncaster maiden after a promising debut at Leicester last term behind subsequent Royal Ascot scorer Hillstar. However, he may just need this reappearance run after an absence of over 250 days although the market should prove instructive in this respect. All three newcomers are nicely bred with Mulakim just preferred of the trio at this stage. DISCO INFERNO was only beaten a couple of necks on his Newmarket debut and makes plenty of appeal with stable inmates regularly improving for the run. The Lawman colt is tongue tied once again and that performance behind Top Joker suggests he'll be the one to beat here.
