SEVERN BORE won a seller at Redcar last Sunday when holding off the attentions of the re-opposing Suivez L'Argent. The latter struggled to go the early pace on that occasion and an extra furlong would suit so Bill Turner's charge is expected to confirm the form here. Relay was beaten further at Folkestone during the week than she was on her debut at Kempton and is hard to fancy though she did finish ahead of Missing Agent last time, while the latter's stablemate Shop Til You Drop never figured on her debut at Wolverhampton. Silicon Valley is related to a winner and makes more appeal than fellow newcomer Black Eider.
