Verdict

Something was clearly amiss with SEEBRIGHT when he was well beaten at Exeter last May. He'd impressed earlier when scoring at Towcester and his debut run at Fontwell has worked out well. He can repay with interest the decision to keep him to bumpers for the time being. Be Bop Boru made it third-time lucky at Ludlow in November but more is needed here under a penalty while pointer Bob Ford makes his debut under Rules. Jockey bookings suggest Winged Crusader is the pick of his yard's two runners today but both may just need this, though are still preferred to fellow newcomer Oh Suzannah and Johncan.
