Most have a claim but maybe a return to the seaside will see LINCOLN RED back to winning ways. He scored snugly when landing back-to-back successes here before running a solid race when sixth in a large-field handicap at Doncaster. Maybe the handicapper has exacted revenge but the Williams gelding still looks one of the likelier ones. Sonnet Rose has gone well here on two of her last four starts and a repeat of her close second to Magical Ride this month reads well. She's a danger, with Seraphim also of interest as she's less exposed than her rivals and boasts fair all-weather form. If translating that level to Turf she'll be there at the business end.
