None of these can be dismissed out of hand though Sellingallthetime looks to have the toughest task. Libeccio has yet to win but finished second over track and trip in April while Zanouska makes her Fibresand debut carrying a penalty for winning at Hamilton last week. Louis Steward's allowance helps reduce a 7lb rise in the weights given to Cape Arrow for winning over 1m3f here last month but the vote goes to DEEP RESOLVE. He won his maiden over 7f at this venue and was beaten only a head over today's distance at Doncaster on his latest start.
