There was something a miss with Disco Inferno when he finished tailed off at Chester last time. He has claims on his earlier form but RUFOOF found only one too good in the same race at Chester and makes more appeal. Charlie Hills' filly is also preferred to Persian Patriot as the latter threw in a bad one at Newmarket last time while La Belle Epoque is having her first start since November having finished third on the Polytrack here on her debut. St Georges Hill was also placed on the all-weather on his introduction and looks best of the rest.
