BLUE ZEPHYR has crept far enough down the ratings to be competitive and having shown improved form last time out, has to be the percentage call in a race where many have chances. Alnaseem was quickly cast out of the John Dunlop yard and as a rare raider from Mick Easterby's stable - has to enter calculations. Olympic Dream has to give weight away has won handicaps on the turf off marks in the high 60's so could be considered to be still fairly well treated. Swansea Jack is respected from a shrewd yard and is a previous course winner. Ayam Zainah probably found six furlongs to be on the sharp side so this step back up to seven seems to be very much in her favour.
