SYNCOPATED LADY has gone close on her last two starts and could win this if handling the going. Valley Tiger has earlier placed form that gives him a chance and Deep Applause has claims on his second at Thirsk last month. Izzet had made the frame in sellers before a poor effort last time and Goodmanyourself drops back in trip after finishing third at Beverley on his latest outing. Concrete Jungle may do better in handicap company along with Valentine's Gift.
