The racing switches to the Polytrack for the rest of the card which bodes well for SABORIDO (NAP) as he finished runner-up over track and trip last time. Amanda Perrett's charge started the season on a 7lb higher mark and can return to winning ways in this. Soundbyte was well beaten here before scoring over 1m6f at Nottingham and No Such Number makes more appeal after going close over 2m at Kempton. Ex Oriente stays today's distance and may have the edge over Men Don't Cry and Wall Street Boss.
