The bottom three in the weights may all improve for this move into nursery class and are not easily discounted whilst Narborough has performed quite creditably in all three starts for the Channon team and is allocated a fair mark. ZALZILAH, outclassed in far better races than this the last three times, was previously a most impressive winner at Beverley when trouncing opponents by 6l. This looks a realistic assignment and he's preferred to Sunset Shore who seemingly had her limitations exposed at Pontefract last time in nursery company after winning a modest contest here. She too should be more at home at this level and cannot be ruled out either.
