Zeva cost 170,000gns and made a promising start at Kempton in the autumn. She is sure to appreciate this step up in distance but so are a few of her rivals including Huffoof, second over a mile on her debut at Lingfield in February, and SHALWA. Marco Botti's Galileo filly gets the nod as she is a full sister to useful middle-distance winner Kite Wood and an Oaks entry suggests she'll improve markedly on her third at Lingfield. Divergence was second over this trip at Lingfield on her reappearance having been quite highly tried as a juvenile. She also has claims and Wadaa should find a race somewhere later this summer.
