Zarosa has been in good form since returning from a break and was only beaten a neck over 2m at Nottingham after winning over 1m4f at Newcastle. Zaplamation is finding it tough to get his head in front off his current mark, however, while Goodlukin Lucy passed up an easier opportunity at Ayr earlier this month. KODICIL deserves a change of luck after being beaten less than a length in his last three runs. He made the well-treated Big Time Billy fight all the way to the line at Ripon last time and a repeat of that effort would probably suffice here.
