Verdict

SEA ODYSSEY sets the standard after a fair debut at Windsor where he showed good early pace and though a moderate draw tempers enthusiasm slightly he should have enough speed to get to the front where it matters. Lord Ali McJones made a decent start at Wolverhampton and his good draw should see him prominent throughout. He wasn't far behind today's rival Courtland King and the latter had run twice previously. Richard Fahey's newcomer Gabrial is likely to need further in time and it would be no great surprise to see his stablemate Peters Pursuit finish in front of him.
