Amenable and Spitfire have so far done all their winning on the all-weather at Southwell. Seamster makes more appeal having landed a double over track and trip early in the year and scoring over 5f here last time. That also looks stronger form than Victorian Number's recent second at the track but Richard Hughes' presence on ALCANDO takes the eye. The latter is dropped in class back on the Polytrack after a close-up third at Brighton and gets the nod.
