Seanie was having just his second start on Polytrack when beating Jamesie over 7f last month. He's yet to prove himself over this trip but the small field should hand him the opportunity to use his pace. Toccata Blue has been beaten a total of less than two lengths in his last three races. He just failed to hold the late thrust of Rummaging last time but will make a bold bid to double his winning tally on the track. REGULATION is the class act here having finished a close second in the Irish Cambridgeshire at the Curragh then winning from a higher mark there subsequently. He's well handicapped on his Turf form and finished runner-up on his only start on the track. He's the one to be on though Billyford, with five victories to his credit here, has to be considered.
