SEEK AGAIN needed only to be pushed out to win a Class 2 handicap at Newmarket on his return to action. An entry in next month's Cambridgeshire suggests this longer trip will suit and John Gosden's colt looks the one to beat. Shamdarley scored over track and trip last month but was well beaten in better company last time and Ehtedaam couldn't cope with a 6lb rise at York having won at Sandown earlier. Nazreef is on a winning mark if back to his best but Loyalty is 6lb higher than February's course and distance victory. Clockmaker and Emilio Largo are others who look high enough in the weights at present.
