Pythagorean was still a little green at Newbury last time but only went down by a head to Related. A hood is tried here to help him concentrate and he should take all the beating but we'll take him on with the less-exposed ZAMOYSKI. There was plenty to like about the latter's first run behind Snow King at Ascot in what looked a hot maiden and he wasn't given a hard time once the principals had flown. He'll have benefited from that experience. Emulating hasn't been disgraced in his two starts so far and this is a slight drop in grade so he should also be thereabouts.
