ZELOS DIKTATOR has gone close off his current mark over 1m4f on the turf. He arrives in good heart having won a hurdle race at Folkestone earlier this month and Gary Moore's charge looks capable of outstaying today's rivals back on Polytrack. Both of Delorain 's victories have been over today's trip with the latest coming at Southwell a couple of weeks ago. He should go well again here along with Frameit, who tried making all over 2m at Lingfield last time and drops down a grade here. Money Money Money and Astrodiva make most appeal of the remainder.
