In depth

Verdict

There was little between Captain Midnight and Zalzilah when placed in similar company over 5f here and both can figure. But the latter's stablemate INVINCIBLE STRIKE is preferred. He found 7f in heavy ground beyond him in the Group 3 Horris Hill at Newbury last month but a repeat of his earlier second in a novices event at Leicester would be good enough to land this. Touch The Clouds is upped 5lb for winning a handicap at Nottingham while Quickaswecan beat little when landing a maiden at Brighton last time.
