Little separates Grand Theft Equine and Heezararity on official figures but the former hasn't raced since January and there are doubts about the latter over this longer trip. The less exposed SYNCOPATE makes more appeal as he found only odds-on shot Harry Buckle too good here last Sunday and this looks easier. Pam Sly's charge can open his account while the newcomer Johns Porridge wouldn't have to be anything special to get involved.
