Belayer, who made a successful debut at Beverley last July, has been racing in very much better class than this though he finished tailed off at York last time and can hardly be supported with confidence. Seaham is still a maiden and his best form ahs been on Polytrack while Slinky McVelvet has done his recent winning at Southwell. Kodafine has won twice at Wolverhampton but never on Turf so it's NATIVE HEART who gets the nod. She was claimed by Jamie Osborne out of Mick Channon's yard after a fine second to Intense Focus on ground with some give at Salisbury. That was just her third start and this looks a decent opportunity to get off the mark.
