Silver Dixie is now 9lb higher than when scoring at Newmarket last month after a couple of subsequent placed efforts. MAZAAHER makes more appeal back over his winning trip after going close over 7f on his latest start. Only 1lb higher today, John Hills' colt gets the nod. Aint Got A Scooby finished ahead of Emulating with a below par Orbison well behind when runner-up at Windsor last time. But the latter is much better than that and may turn the tables if back to his best today.
