Today's pointers.

Today's pointers Zoffany has an opportunity to avenge his sole defeat when lining up in the Group 1 Keeneland Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh (4.15).

The Dansili colt has hardly broken sweat to win four of his five starts, but they were all slowly run affairs (three of his races produced Topspeed figures of 33, 62 and 47) and he could manage only sixth when thrown in against the big boys behind Strong Suit in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot in June, after which inexperience was offered as an excuse.

After toying with his rivals in small fields in two outings since, Zoffany faces his moment of truth today, when he will have the chance to prove there is more to his game than just the ability to quicken off a slow pace.

Sir Michael Stoute's Entitled has attracted plenty of support (7-4 and 10-11) on both starts to date - which isn't surprising considering she's a sister to Group 1 winner Peeress - and no doubt punters will load up again when she lines up for the fillies' maiden at Windsor (4.30).

While this looks to be her easiest opportunity to date, in-running players might want to bear in mind that she has traded at lows of 1.8 and 1.23 in her races, and she drifted badly right in the closing stages at Pontefract last time.

Perhaps, like her sister, she's going to be ideally suited by cut in the ground.
