Polytrack winner, SYNCOPATE, ran well on his seasonal debut when beaten only a length by Thecornishcowboy at Lingfield last month. Pam Sly's charge looks up to scoring off his current mark and gets the nod. Regal Swain is another who went close on his reappearance at Redcar and he can figure, but Rayadour is not certain to appreciate the drop back in distance after a recent fourth over 1m4f at Doncaster. Warcrown and Cashpoint could make their presence felt and Gran Maestro's best form in France gives him a shout.
