Timeform on Summer Day

Star of Zeus - 10:50 Scottsville

Star of Zeus has been quite hard to fault in his two starts so far, improving on his debut run with a solid fourth at Greyville last time. This is a weak race, and it's likely that he will take all of the beating, and as such gets the vote to break his maiden at the third time of asking. Merlin From Berlin has the best from of the rest, and rates as the biggest threat in a race that won't take much winning.

Summer Day - 11:25 Scottsville

Summer Day made a solid if unremarkable debut at Greyville 12 days ago, and she's likely to have learned plenty from that first run. She only finished sixth of eight there, but that form is still some of the strongest on offer in this, and provided she's fully tuned up, she can take this. Lady Abigail is far more experienced, with seven starts and a win under her belt, and would be a big danger if in the right mood.

Gat Henshaw - 12:00 Scottsville

Gat Henshaw took a big step forward from his reappearance when finishing fifth at Scottsville last time, and he will be very tough to stop if repeating that run here. Archilles won here last time out and is respected, though he will find life tougher raised 4 lb, whilst Sylvester The Cat prowls into calculations, too.
