Verdict

Kakatosi held off a strong challenge from Clear Praise to win at Lingfield a fortnight ago. The latter re-opposes on better terms but it's too close to call between those two so a chance is taken on SEEK THE FAIR LAND. He ended last year below par but the multiple Polytrack winner scored off a higher mark at this time last year and this is easier than his recent tasks. Hamoody scored over the minimum trip here last time and may be best over 5f nowadays but Seeking Magic is not easily dismissed if running up to his best form.
