SYNDICATE failed to land the odds when runner-up here last month but she separated horses rated 85 and 88 and that looks good enough form to land this. She gets another chance with both Song Maker and Seyadah needing to find plenty of improvement from modest debut efforts though Al Nafoorah found only one too good at Haydock last time and she looks a threat. The likes of Pobbles and Illaunmore never figured on their respective debuts but the newcomer Great Court is related to five winners including the useful Kalahari Gold and is worth noting.
Al Nafoorah 4-1 (9-0) Chased leaders, effort on inside over 2f out, kept on well closing stages, no chance with winner, 2nd of 5, 1 1/4l behind Mary Anne Evans (9-0) at Haydock 1m mdn fll stks (5) gd in Sep.
