Anaconda was third in a Listed race on the Polytrack in February but finished last back on Turf at Chester and it's not a good sign to see him dropped into this grade. Commissar is another who seems best on an artificial surface and he would have preferred a bit further. Matraash's last four victories have come in sellers on the Polytrack while Kingston Eucalypt is still a maiden after 12 attempts and doesn't appear to be getting any better. INCENDO is thoroughly exposed but did win one of these at Catterick last month and there's no reason why he won't run his race again so gets the vote.
