Captain Ramius is looking to repeat last year's win in this off a 5lb higher mark. He had King Of Jazz and Citrus Star behind in the Bunbury Cup over C&D last time and should make a bold bid. The latter has since finished a couple of lengths behind runner-up White Frost at York while there's little between Noble Citizen and Highland Colori on earlier running in a hot handicap at Ascot. Cape Classic can do better back over 7f and Mississippi has shown ability but ZUMBI gets the nod. He hasn't raced since April but a chance is taken that Sir Michael Stoute has him ready to fulfil the potential shown last year when he was third to Entifaadha in the Acomb Stakes at York.
