"She won a handicap over this C&D in good style last season under this rider..."

Timeform on See The Sea

17:20 -A chance is taken on five-time course winner DREAMS OF GLORY (7) who stopped the slide when runner-up over C&D 9 days ago, and remains well treated on his old form. QUANTUM DOT (1) is another who can make his presence felt if turning up in the right frame of mind and is also worth keeping on side, while Toolatetodelegate and Dalness Express are a couple others capable of getting involved in what looks a wide-open handicap.

17:55 - POWERFUL DREAM (1) hasn't put a foot wrong all season and looks the most solid option. She wasn't inconvenienced by the switch back to turf when a creditable second over this C&D last time and should go close if turning up in the same form. Dual C&D scorer Coronation Cottage will likely strip fitter for her reappearance and may provide the main threat ahead of Met By Moonlight.

18:25 - CRYSTAL DEAUVILLE (5) improved under an attacking ride when successful at Brighton a couple of weeks ago and a 5 lb rise may not prevent him going in again. Jockey William Cox offsets that rise with his claim for which he is good value for. Mark Johnston's Knockout Blow will be more at home back at five furlongs and is feared along with Haylah.

18:55 - FRANCOPHILIA (1) was well backed but caught out by inexperience when third on her Ripon debut last month and has the potential to leave that form behind now stepping up in trip. She has a beautiful pedigree and the way she finished that day suggests this trip will suit. Useful hurdler Brahms de Clermont is an interesting opponent, while Falcon's View, Point of Honour and Sarim are well-bred newcomers who would come into it if the market speaks in their favour.

19:25 - SEE THE SEA (2) will be sharper with her reappearance behind her and she will appreciate this step back up in trip. She won a handicap over this C&D in good style last season under this rider and she is well worth chancing to resume winning ways. Last-time-out all-weather scorers Spiritual Man and Bayston Hill could be the pair to give her most to do.

19:55 - DANGLYDONTASK (5) won a course handicap on last year's reappearance following a similar absence to the one he faces this time, so he could be worth siding with in what looks a trappy affair. Volpone Jelois should be a factor, but looks short enough in the betting, while Attain and French Mix arrive fit and in form from the all-weather.

20:25 - CHRISTMAS NIGHT (5) arrives here unpenalised for his recent success at Beverley and is selected to follow up. Choral Music is going the right way and is very much one to consider in her pursuit of the hat-trick, while My Boy Sepoy wasn't seen to best effect from an unfavourable position last time and remains with potential.
