Grevillea and Sebs Sensei share similar profiles as both disappointed dropped back in trip last time having posted decent efforts on their respective debuts over 7f at Newbury. They're hard to separate on that evidence so a chance is taken on BLUE ATLANTIC. He improved to finish second behind an odds-on hotpot at Redcar on his latest start and today's rivals may regret allowing him an easy lead around here. The remainder will do well to trouble the principals on what little they've shown so far.
