Have You Seen Me has shown little in only two outings since going close at Cheltenham back in 2011. The jury is out on him at present while Noble Legend has something to prove stepping back up a grade after a third at Wetherby. By contrast, Towcester winner L'ELDORADO will be much more at home at this level having failed to figure behind Cloudy Too last time and Chris Bealby's charge gets the nod. Marley Roca may do better back on faster going today but Aviso returns to chasing off a 13lb higher mark than when scoring at Stratford last year.
