Zuzinia failed to show any improvement for the step up to 6f last time and drops back to the minimum trip. The same comment also applies to GOLDEN ZEPHYR but her debut fourth at Ascot is the best piece of form on show and Barry Hills' filly gets the vote on that basis. Surrey Pink was still well beaten when third on the Polytrack here last time while New Providence is preferred to Creative Genius of the newcomers on today's terms.
