INTERCHOICE STAR won a similar low grade contest over 7f last week. He'd previously gone close over this shorter trip and can follow up. Seamster was placed over 7f here on his latest start and Christopher Chua finished ahead of Play The Blues when runner-up at Lingfield last month. Diamond Vine and Scommettitrice are closely matched on recent running over course and distance, though neither looked like winning and it's even harder to make a serious case for any of the remainder.
