ZHIGGY'S STARDUST has a 5lb rise for winning a maiden over track and trip cancelled out by Oisin Murphy's allowance. He gets the nod to follow up on that basis although Fenella Fudge went close under today's rider at Leicester and should be in the mix again. So should Commanding Presence as he's only 2lb higher than when scoring over track and trip in May and is preferred to Bath specialist Annes Rocket and Southwell winner Prince Of Passion.
