Verdict

ZELOS DIKTATOR won over hurdles last month and his recent efforts on the Polytrack at Kempton earn him the vote in such a weak race. A case can also be made for stablemate and C&D winner Finch Flyer, but he's having his first run since January, while Galloping Queen has been given a chance by the handicapper on her first start for Sheena West. Dolly Colman has been running well over a longer trip at this track recently and Fastada could figure on the best of her placed form.
