CONO ZUR was unable to take the lead at Thirsk last time and ran a stinker. He'd made all to win both here and at Beverley before that and, with no confirmed front-runners to take him on here, Ruth Carr's charge is fancied to take this. Fibs And Flannel has a bit to find with the selection on earlier form, while Bolodenka has been winning in plating company and faces a tougher task today. Frontline Girl and Mingun Bell have claims off their current marks and it would be no surprise to see Champagne Style bounce back to form having tumbled down the weights since last summer.
