Dual course-and-distance winner VISTERRE is picked to land this nursery as the return to a quicker surface is likely to suit this son of Noverre. A combination of a stiff five furlongs and soft ground seemed to be the selection's undoing last time. Norfolk Broads and Fivefootnumberone look the biggest dangers here. Norfolk Broads just held on to win last time at Goodwood however, and the step back to five furlongs is not sure to suit. Fivefootnumberone had first-time headgear applied last time when finishing second - confirming the impression that five furlongs does appear his trip. Dispol Kylie and Zelos Girl are others worthy of consideration.
