UIMHIR A SEACHT reappears just three days after landing a novices' handicap over a longer trip at Chepstow. She just held on that day after looking as though she'd win easily halfway up the home straight so the drop in distance could suit and she can defy a penalty to complete the hat-trick. The others appear modest though Quite Sparky has hinted at ability on a couple of occasions and the four-year-old One Million may do better now tackling low-grade handicaps. Highland Rain and Ancient Times look best of the rest.
