ZAMRA was having her first start on Turf when dead-heating here last week where she was caught in the dying strides over 1m4f. This shorter trip will suit and she looks certain to go well under her penalty. Masterpaver has done very well on Polytrack completing a hat-trick earlier this year but his poor Turf form continued at Yarmouth on Tuesday. Lunar Spirit makes her handicap debut and should be capable of better but Sellingallthetime was a disappointment when stepped up to this trip at Nottingham. Opera Fan could provide the main threat as she showed promise last summer and reappears on what could prove to be a very lenient mark. Casper Lee's only success came in a seller on soft ground.
