Chance Encounter put up a fine performance for his small yard when second on debut behind Shinko Moon but the field finished quite closely bunched for a bumper and SIN BIN is preferred. The son of Presenting represents leading connections and the stable's representatives usually lack little in the way of fitness on their debuts. All For Cash showed much improved form last time and the yard had a bumper winner at Hereford this week, whilst Ali Baba, Kings Lad and Divide And Conquer all represent yards that do well in these contests.
