It's on to the Polytrack for this closing bumper and, as PEINTRE STER scored over C&D back in March, he's taken to defy a penalty and make a winning reappearance. Zigzaga made a promising debut when third over a longer trip at Fontwell last month and should figure along with recent Fakenham runner-up Rich Maid. Hanahoe and Ilewin Dundee have a bit more to find on their seasonal returns, while it's no surprise to see the American-bred Piano Concerto making his racecourse debut on the all-weather.
