Zaaki is the top-rated performer in this line-up and warrants plenty of respect with his sights lowered, while Epic Hero must also enter calculations following his half a length second in the Group 3 Strensall Stakes at York. The vote, however, MONTATHAM, who is improving all the time and looks ready for the step up to Pattern company following three handicap wins, and a fine second in the Royal Hunt Cup, this season. The fact Jim Crowley prefers him to the smart Motakhayyel is also a big positive.
