ZEBZARDEE can get the better of Xtara with the benefit of 6lb less on his back.
The tip has shown promise on two starts to date with solid thirds at Beverley and Redcar last time out.
He seemed to appreciate the step up to this distance last time and there should be more to come.
ALABANZA looks ready to win after taking a bit step forward when third in a tight finish at Hamilton last time out.
He came with a late rattle there and connections can have him a little closer to the pace today, which could make all the difference.
BREXIT TIME should really have won on debut in a turf contest at Lingfield last time out. He finished well but he’d give the winner too much of a start.
There should be a fair bit of improvement on that effort which gives him every chance of going on better.
FIRST FLIGHT had plenty left in the tank when winning at Ayr last time so a 5lb rise in the weights shouldn’t be an issue. That was over this trip on decent ground and this doesn’t look a tougher contest.
INGLEBY HOLLOW is a consistent performer and he should be on the premises again after losing out in a head-bobber at Ayr last time. That was over this trip, which suits well, and a 2lb rise in the weights gives him a chance.
Although THE GREAT WALL has plenty of strong form over 7f, he shaped as though dropping back to this 6f would suit when second at York last time. He just ran out of gas in the closing stages so the shorter distance could work out well.
KODIMOOR ran his best race for a long time when beaten less than two lengths at Hamilton three weeks ago. He might have won with a clear run and the handicapper has actually dropped him 1lb, which is a plus. This trip and track suit well and he’s won off higher marks so should be thereabouts.
