GREY SEAL is less exposed than the majority of these and very much the one to beat on her fourth to last Thursday's Britannia Stakes winner Fast Or Free at Kempton last month. She was only a short-head behind Picture Dealer, who won easily at Brighton next time. Moral Issue and Just Five still look too high in the weights but Ishikawa may not have stayed 1m4f here last month and is worth another chance while Mr Chocolate Drop is a recent C&D winner and has been successful seven times on the all-weather. Breakheart and Justcallmehandsome are both very well treated on their best form but neither has shown much lately.
