Zulu Tracker improved to get his head in front at Bath but he was entitled to win over C&D last time and he is a little short here up 3lb in a better race. HODLER impressed winning convincingly at Sandown last month and I loved the way he hit the line. He is up 4lb off a mark of 80 now but I feel there is still more to come yet and this looks a good opportunity for him to follow up. Saffie Osborne claims 3lb and is a good jockey booking so the 5/2 definitely looks worth a play. Bar the front pair Dandys Derriere deserves a mention as he was back to form when second at Windsor and did back that up to some extent when third at Newmarket last time. He is a bit one paced but is unlikely to be far away again. Chief Of Staff needs the cheekpieces to help get him back on track as that was poor again at Redcar last time.

I think it’s safe to say that Jamie Spencer had a bit of a mare on FULFILLED at Sandown last week. This son of Ulysses was coming with a big run up the inside but was completely blocked off and that cost him any chance of coming out on top. His win over C&D before that was promising and he still has more to come. He races off the same mark and I’ll be very surprised if he doesn’t take the beating here. Lethal Force filly Just Amber brought her best form to the table to win at Nottingham last time. That looks solid enough form and if she can handle a quick turnaround under a penalty she might emerge as the danger. Mr Marvlos did well to finish second last time given how keen he was. If he manages to settle better then he might not be far away. First Dance is below her last winning mark so also has a squeak.
