Mazeydd carries a penalty for his recent victory at Warwick but that shouldn't prevent another bold bid here. Saytara scored at Salisbury three weeks ago but Frankie Dettori prefers stablemate INTHAR for his only ride of the meeting. The latter came up against the improving Ruscello at Yarmouth last time but has plenty of scope and gets the nod ahead of the equally unexposed Pallasator, a winner at Leicester on his reappearance and just the type his trainer excels with. Nordic Quest's win at Windsor win came in soft ground back in April and Cresta Star makes more appeal if back to her best.
