Zanouska won at Lingfield in between a couple of dire efforts and it's anybody's guess what mood she'll be in today. Nyanza is preferred given she beat Roman Riches a couple of lengths when scoring over track and trip last week and she should also have the measure of Deauville Dancer and Improvized. But NEXT STOP could prove a bigger threat as she won over a mile here last month in a manner that suggested this longer distance will suit. Lee Carter's filly gets the nod to defy a 6lb rise and go in again.
