Catching Zeds has been raised 5lb after beating Black Coffee here but a line through the latter suggests she has something to find on today's terms with STARGAZING. Marco Botti's mare just failed over a longer trip here last time, but had scored over C&D previously and looks capable of going in again off her current mark. Twisted's only win so far came at this track in October and he could have a say in proceedings, while Serious Drinking has claims on her best form but ran poorly at Kempton when last seen.
