See And Be Seen followed up his win at Bath with a victory at Wolverhampton last week where Sunblazer finished a couple of lengths behind. He should go well again along with Jebulani, who is usually thereabouts but has only won a seller at Beverley to date. Duke Of Yorkshire and Estinaad seem to be treading water at present while Samoset has plenty to find on his handicap debut. MONTJESS ran below par over 2m in soft ground last time but has leading claims on her earlier close second at Sandown over today's trip. She can race off a lower mark in this with Jack Duern's allowance taken into account and gets the vote.
