CONO ZUR returns to action quickly after a battling effort at Beverley during the week when just failing to repel Robert The Painter. Ruth Carr has booked an experienced pilot for this recovery mission and the bold front-runner is taken to deliver the goods under optimum conditions. The 6-y-o is also the only course and distance winner on show which increases confidence. Prime Exhibit looks up against it off topweight but will receive maximum support from the saddle and it's McCool Bannanas who emerges as the major danger. He's filled the minor placing on his last three starts and seems sure to run his race once again off a fair mark under a young apprentice who's starting to catch the eye with regularity. Dropped to a mark of 61, a good run is expected whilst Chiswick Bey has place possibilities.
