Verdict

The Johnston yard have picked up the last two renewals and Zanouska will likely make another bold bid having won here in May. But ITSNOWCATO is less exposed and ran well behind Insaany at Newmarket on last month's seasonal and handicap debut. Ed Walker's colt is preferred to Incurs Four Faults, upped in class off a higher mark after winning at Carlisle. The handicapper looks to have caught up with Operateur and Northside Prince makes more appeal than Ted's Brother over middle-distances.
