Oaks entry SEA THE BLOOM is likely to prove popular stepping up to middle-distances on her return. She finished a respectable fourth over 7f at Newmarket on her debut and is preferred to the other Cheveley Park-owned filly Holberg Suite. The latter is a sister to former stablemate and three-time winner Piano. Mr Greenspan finished well ahead of Flight Fight when third at Kempton while Arod was placed at the same track on his debut and a string of fancy entries suggest he's worth keeping a close eye on here. Kinshasa is a half-brother to the useful Kikonga and one to note for the future.
