ZARIUS was unable to follow up his victory over C&D when upped a grade here last time, but he wasn't disgraced in finishing second to Rio Cobolo. Chris Wall's charge can return to winning ways back at this level and confirm running with Ubenkor. Jonnie The Skull just got the better of Exceedingly Good over track and trip in April and they're closely matched today, but Bold Diva has failed to figure off a higher mark since winning here earlier this year. Baby Driver has been in better form on turf lately and looks best of the remainder.
