It's hard to recommend any of this modest bunch. Zinnobar has been thereabouts without looking like winning and finished a length ahead of LOLA MONTEZ when third over track and trip. But the latter was making her handicap debut on that occasion and with improvement expected David Lanigan's filly may come out best today. Illegale has made the frame in a seller here, Sixties Queen won over a shorter trip back in April and Royal Trooper won over 1m6f at Wolverhampton last year.
