SEEDLING, quite highly tried after winning on his debut at Lingfield just under a year ago, may well be good enough to defy his penalty in the first division of this bumper ahead of winning pointer Doing Fine, who makes his debut under Rules. French import Vikekhal may need more time to acclimatise while the Overbury filly Queen Avalon wears a hood on her racecourse debut and may not be straightforward.
