In depth

Verdict

SEABORN (NAP) won five times on the Flat last year for Patrick Chamings and has joined Gary Moore. A run on the Flat at Sandown last month will have blown the cobwebs away and though well beaten in three starts over hurdles he's much improved since wind surgery. In receipt of 21lb from Uttoxeter winner Perfect City he looks the one to beat. For Pleasure, twice a winner on the Flat in Ireland, hasn't quite been getting home over hurdles though the handicapper has given him a chance while Londonia has won three times over timber including under Richard Johnson.
