King D'Argent was always holding Seaborough at Wetherby and may well confirm that form, despite worse terms, with a subsequent third coming in Listed company. ADJALI was also third in a Listed race last time, at Auteuil. Simon Munir bought him at the end of last month and has sent him to Nicky Henderson, who should win plenty of races with the Kamsin gelding. Al Kherb is an interesting newcomer for John Quinn as he won his first two starts on the Flat for Roger Charlton and cost 40,000gns at Tattersalls in October.
