ZIGGY LEE may be able to resist the handicapper's attention and follow-up at the expense of Kheylide and Imaginary Diva. The selection landed a bit of a touch at Wolverhampton and, as a result, he has to prove his effectiveness on turf from a 9lb higher mark. The second, third and fourth all won their next starts so it may not be too harsh an assessment and it's worth noting that it wasn't deemed necessary to turn him out under a penalty. Speak The Truth was the third home and renews rivalry on 7lb better terms having dead-heated at Bath to gain his first turf success. Imaginary Diva ran one of her better races on grass when behind Amosite and she has claims of reversing the placings whilst Zelos Girl and Choisharp need to be checked for support. Kheylide appeals as the biggest danger having made a progressive sort pull out the stops at Beverley and he won't be long in winning on that evidence but Ziggy Lee may prove too strong.
