Peace Seeker hasn't won for some time but has gone close on his last three starts. He still looks a shade high in the weights on that evidence and ADMIRALTY makes more appeal. The latter ended last season with a win over course and distance and made a winning return at Kempton, beating Macdonald Mor and The Guru Of Gloom. A hat-trick looks on the cards here despite a 5lb rise. Colourbearer has won four times over 6f here including his latest start and is worth another try over today's trip, but Chester winner Ozz has something to prove now after finishing last on his recent comeback at this track.
