It's unlikely any of this bunch can remember what winning feels like and only a token vote goes the way of SEAQUEL. She won over hurdles in 2010 and finished third at Kempton last time ahead of Joyously. Crimson Monarch's only win so far was back in 2007 but he was second over track and trip a fortnight ago with Snowy Valley and There's No Rules behind. Rajeh has shown no benefit despite plummeting down the weights in the last year and looks on the downgrade while 2011 bumper winner Life Of Laughter's improved recent form has been over longer trips than this.
