DELFT has run five times on Polytrack and won three. She scored with something in hand at Kempton last time and the handicapper looks to have erred on the side of leniency handing her just a 4lb rise so she's taken to complete the double. Sound Amigo has won three times here but suffered in the weights after his early victories and has been going back up in the ratings without winning after some fine performances. Shahzan won a Doncaster maiden in May but has been a beaten favourite in two subsequent starts and makes his Polytrack debut so a bigger threat may emerge in the shape of Johnny Cavagin. He's won three of his last four and has an earlier victory on this track to his credit. He was impressive at Pontefract last time and it will be a surprise if he's not competitive.
