Grey Zeb is presumably thought capable of better given he's giving away plenty of weight on today's terms. Alderaan came up short when sent off favourite at Catterick while Diamond Creek and LAZY DAYS IN LOULE share similar profiles. Both won their respective maidens at Beverley before failing to figure in much better company last time and both get an apprentice on board for this. But the latter beat a subsequent winner in April so the tentative vote goes to Noel Wilson's filly on the strength of that form.
