Plenty of theses arrive in good heart, none more so than Seamster. Richard Ford's charge scored over 6f here at the end of January and followed up with a comfortable victory despite a 9lb rise. He's up another 5lb but the shorter trip will suit and he should be in the shake-up. Give Us A Belle completed a Wolverhampton double in December but hasn't been able to consolidate that form from his higher mark. Angelo Poliziano last won a year ago but he's been in decent form lately, though he's a rare runner here and none of his five all-weather victories have been on the track. PHAROH JAKE scored over the course and distance on New Year's Eve but it was his latest effort that point to his obvious chance. Setting a fast pace, he was only collared close home over an extra furlong in a Class 3 handicap won by Multitask and if he runs up to that form would take the world of beating.
