None of these jump off the page but given that ZAMINA has gone very close when 1lb worse off Sylvester Kirk's runner has the narrow verdict. The Hawk Wing filly was held less than a length before finding no disgrace behind a progressive sort next time so with the surface likely to suit she should go well. Beer Flush beat home a couple of subsequent winners in a better race last time so off 1lb lower should go close as should Phoenix Flame with another 2lb removed. Geronimo Chief should do better now upped in trip and sent handicapping but Zamina marginally looks the best option.
