There is little between these in something of a lottery. Mojambo has been in good form over longer trips here and Pike Corner Cross was also placed over further at the track last time without threatening the winner. Waitaki failed to build on an earlier second at Newcastle when well beaten at Kempton but SEAFORTH won over track and trip last month and was placed over 7f back here last time. The return to a mile could see Adrian Wintle’s charge back to winning ways and he gets the vote. Lappet travels over from Ireland but never threatened when third here last month.
