Seebright is likely to go to Wincanton instead of being asked to carry top weight in this. BEYEH has an alternative engagement at Wetherby but Mike Appleby could be tempted by the better prize money here as his mare looks very well treated with just a 7lb penalty for a runaway win at Southwell, where she could be called the winner a long way from home. Junction Fourteen only won by a head at Fontwell last month but has plenty of scope and Twelve Roses has continued climbing up the weights despite failing to add to his win at Towcester in May. Billy Twyford may also be in the handicapper's grip and Big Casino made no impression at Cheltenham last month but Quaddick Lake was second at Ffos Las 10 days ago and Master Of The Game is much better than he showed at Newbury on his reappearance
