Seemenomore has been raised 11lb for last month's double at Southwell and his improvement may be down to the Fibresand surface - PIPPY makes more appeal on the Polytrack. The latter can race off the same mark as when scoring in a higher grade at Wolverhampton in August and should go in again. Forceful Flame's latest third came in a maiden and he's already been well beaten in a handicap so Girl Of Cadiz and Roman Order are preferred on their latest placed efforts.
