First-time blinkers may bring further improvement from ALLEGATION. She just failed to catch the winner over track and trip last time and may edge out the other leading contender on paper, Limousine. The latter was beaten less than a length over 1m2f at Lingfield earlier this month and should stay the extra distance. The remainder are hard to fancy on what little they've shown to date so the newcomer Seamour will not have to be anything special to get involved.
