Dancing Mystery, Chatshow and Zazous are the three for the shortlist with the consistent Dancing Mystery getting the vote. Chatshow made light of a three month lay off when scoring at Bath last time. He had earlier met trouble in running at Warwick and with that success under his belt is respected. Zazous scored at Newbury two outings ago over six furlongs and attempted a follow up at Goodwood last time over the minimum trip. He was staying on well at the finish but seemed to find five furlongs on the sharp side and may find the same again here. Dancing Mystery has been running well of late, with a fine effort to be second at Goodwood then followed by a win on a return visit to the Sussex track. He has gone up just four pounds for that success and Dancing Mystery is taken to follow up.
