Supa Seeker only won a seller here last month and was well behind KATMAI RIVER over track and trip in January. Only a couple of pounds worse off, Mark Usher's seven-year-old is a consistent performer around here and can get back to winning ways under Charlotte Jenner. Flying Giant looks harshly treated but does have more scope than the likes of Daniel Thomas and Dr Lesseps while blinkers will have to bring about improvement in Devote Myself.
