Seamster arrives in fine form and went close again at Beverley last week but he’s still penalised for an earlier win at Catterick. Dutch Archer has run well at Wolverhampton either side of finishing last over 6f here while Groundworker and Flash City finished runner-up on faster going last time. Coiste Bodhar is upped in class after scoring at Thirsk so RAINBOW ORSE looks the one to beat despite having been raised 4lb for winning in soft ground under Silvestre De Sousa at Nottingham - that raise is negated by an apprentice’s allowance today.
