Zechariah disappointed at Newmarket after a promising first run at Yarmouth while King's Guard steps up a furlong after failing to build on a second at Nottingham when favourite at Kempton. DUKEDOM had excuses when proving no match for the well-regarded Sonny Liston over track and trip on debut. With that experience to draw on, Frankie’s mount can recoup losses though there are a couple of newcomers worth a market check with the Kingman colt Thesis being a full brother to the useful Boardman and Majalh also looking a nice type on breeding.
