Collodi had a decent record in Germany but may need his first run for a new yard. Frozen Over was second off today's mark at Goodwood last time and has claims while Fazza won over course last month, though has been beaten twice since. Ralphy Boy has been more consistent lately and Cono Zur is handily berthed for one that likes to race up to the pace but HAKUNA MATATA beat him easily on similar terms at Ripon in June and can confirm the form. Michael Dods' charge is fitted with a visor today and that can encourage him to get his head back in front under a more-than-useful 5lb claimer.
