Verdict

Iptisam took up the lead pretty early over a mile at Thirsk last time and was caught in the final furlong. Disco Inferno also likes to race prominently and finished runner-up over today's trip at Chepstow last week. That pair run the danger of setting things up nicely for RUFOOF given Charlie Hills' filly caught the eye finishing strongly over 6f at Ripon on her latest start. The latter should have today's race run to suit and gets the nod ahead of Martial Art, who looks best of the remainder.
