Editor goes for Zetland victory

Derby hope Picture Editor will face nine rivals when he puts his Classic credentials on the line in the Bet365 Zetland Conditions Stakes at Newmarket on Saturday.

The Henry Cecil-trained colt is unbeaten in two starts and vying for second-favouritism at Epsom behind his stablemate Frankel.

Already a winner over the 10-furlong trip, he is a well-related individual as his grand-dam is Slightly Dangerous, the dam of Commander In Chief and Warning among others.

With Tom Queally suspended, Ian Mongan comes in for the plum ride.

Leading the opposition looks to be the Mahmood Al Zarooni-trained Shooting Gallery, the easy winner of a Sandown maiden before finishing fourth in a Group Three event at Saint-Cloud.

Others of interest include Solario Stakes runner-up Measuring Time for Richard Hannon and Brian Meehan’s progressive Indigo Way.
