Zanetto has returned to action in cracking form and landed the Tattersalls Millions at Newmarket. This is a step-up in grade but he's entitled to go well though the one to take from that race is GRAPHIC GUEST. Mick Channon's filly had anything but a clear run that day and she's taken to reverse the form and gain the third success of her career. Ninjago won first time out last season and finished with a couple of minor race victories and he's respected along with Pearl Acclaim, who wasn't beaten far in Group company on her last two starts. Ahern and Sandreamer are others to consider in what looks an open contest.
