All of these make their handicap debuts but SEAELLA won a seller at York before placing behind the unbeaten Poetic Steps and she may prove good enough. The latter is trained by Mark Johnston and he runs Go Now Go Now, who was still beaten four lengths when runner-up at Ripon earlier. Richard Fahey is represented by Wolverhampton third Crownthorpe and Faradays Spark, who landed a seller over today’s trip at Ripon last month, while Felisa may prove best of the remainder.
