The penny dropped with ZAIN ZONE at Epsom last time as he made all for an easy win. With further progress expected from Gerard Butler's colt, he may well improve past the higher rated Al Baz.

Severnwind has plenty to find with the aforementioned pair but newcomer Hot Reply is a half-sister to high-class sprinter Krypton Factor and is worth noting on her introduction.
