Eyeline finished only a length ahead of Walter De La Mere at Warwick last time and that pair are closely matched as they step up in trip. Finch Flyer was still well beaten when third at this track earlier but did have Global Recovery well behind. Sugar Coated disappointed at Lingfield last month so the vote goes to last month's Brighton winner SEE AND BE SEEN. Sylvester Kirk's charge found only one too good over 1m4f here subsequently and this looks no tougher.
