Zodiakos carries 5lb extra for winning at Haydock and Marshal Dan has been raised 3lb after scoring over 7f at Salisbury. The Throstles has won four of only nine outings on the all-weather but has yet to win on Turf and Al Reeh hasn’t won anywhere since 2016 but was placed at Kempton when last in action in January. TRULEE SCRUMPTIOUS won this in 2017 and scored again here last summer. Now back on a winning mark, she could bounce back at any time and gets a speculative vote in this opener.
