ZAMPRINI hasn't run in a grade this low since scoring at Wolverhampton in 2015. His latest narrow defeat at Windsor came in a Class 3 handicap and he can run from a 1lb lower mark so looks the one to be on. Hajaam is an obvious threat after completing a double with a demolition job at Kempton though he was very well handicapped there and is 12lb higher now. Scoones has been steadily improving on Polytrack culminating in a victory at Lingfield for which he's 6lb higher while Essenaitch is in fine form and escapes a penalty for last week's victory at Nottingham. Pat Shanahan sends What Wonders Weave from Ireland though it was only a seller he won at Hamilton last month.
