David O'Meara applies a visor to Royal Sea on his handicap debut and Graham Lee's mount showed good pace for a long way on his latest maiden start. All of PRECISION FIVE's five runs to date have been over 7f and she scored over that trip at Lingfield. She was a bit unlucky here last time and can gain compensation. Lightning Spirit ran well at Kempton last time and must be a threat on the same mark as when winning there a year ago while Fortunate Bid is consistent enough and should make a bold bid. Nant Saeson is a massive 20lb lower than when making his handicap debut in January but was beaten in a Redcar seller last time.
