Has an in-and-out profile but it was her fourth win from her last six starts when scoring at Catterick (3m1f, good to soft) in December; this is tougher but she's progressive and has to be respected.

Pulled up on two of his final three starts last season but nevertheless showed some good hurdle form last term and his useful half-brothers Isleofhopendreams and Mighty Thunder both showed their best form over fences; finished placed in points and he's respected on this chase debut.

Relatively lightly raced 7yo; off the mark in a Leicester handicap (2m4f, soft) in December and bounced back from a major blip when runner-up at Market Rasen (2m7f, soft) last month; had the run of things in front that day but unexposed as a stayer and is open to more progress; in the mix.

Was progressing well, winning at Ludlow (3m, good to soft) and Warwick (3m1f, soft), prior to bombing out at Uttoxeter four weeks ago; perhaps that was a blip but he'll need further improvement to return to winning ways in a race as strong as this one; stablemate of West Balboa and Gwennie May Boy.

Hasn't looked back since sent handicapping at about 3m with three wins and a second (from soft to good); stayed on much the best at Warwick last time to earn this 6lb higher mark and goes again with his yard in red-hot form.

Won his first two handicaps (at about 3m; good to soft) before finding an in-form rival too strong when raised in class at Ascot (good); nudged up 3lb for that defeat but his progress since handicapping has been hard to knock.

Well handicapped on old form but never really got going last season, and cheekpieces (now removed) did not appear to help much when tried in April; needs to have been revitalised by 197-day break.

Point winner who made it 2-6 over hurdles with his emphatic win at Warwick (3m2f, soft) in November; disappointing in his follow-up bid at Lingfield 13 days later but that may have come too soon and he could resume his progress here after a break; respected for in-form yard.

Ended last season in good form, most notably when winning at Huntingdon (3m1f, soft); made a satisfactory reappearance last month but dropped out very quickly after making the running at Market Rasen on latest outing and needs to put that performance behind her; sports first-time cheekpieces.

Verdict

Dan Skelton’s SEEFIN is asked a stiff question by the handicapper but it was all very straightforward at Uttoxeter. Blue Bikini and Hillfinch are feared most in that order.[Alistair Jones]
