DISCRESSION made a highly promising debut behind the odds-on Swiss Spirit here last month when All Or Nothin ran well for a long way. The third horse has been well beaten subsequently but Kevin Ryan's charge is still likely to be difficult to beat and gets the vote. Choisan has come up against a couple of useful winners in his races to date while Whinging Willie has run well over 5f and 7f so today's trip should prove ideal. Sunrise Dance showed ability behind Huma Bird on fast ground at Lingfield while the market should be noted as to the chances of several well-connected newcomers including Mark Johnston's Moataz, who is a half-brother to 7f 2yo winner Menadati.
