Dual bumper winner Seebright made a winning start over hurdles at Wetherby but then fell here in February and ran a shocker at Ffos Las subsequently. He'd take all the beating if back on song but, at the likely odds, FLING ME may be a better bet. Placed twice in bumpers, he was only beaten three lengths at Southwell last time and is bred to be a jumper. Serious Mixture was an impressive winner between the flags in November but hasn't been seen since and Up Your Game has an even longer absence to overcome. But Lascaux hinted at ability on his hurdling debut and may have more to offer.
