Sebs Sensei has a higher handicap rating than the four-year-old Awattan but has had plenty of chances and one of the less exposed types may well improve past him here. Both Bishan Bedi and Sand Stormer fit into that category with the former just preferred on his latest third over track and trip to Swivel, a subsequent handicap winner. But the vote goes to James Tate's filly ZAMRA, fourth here last Saturday and expected to show further progress today.
