Improver Set To Sink This Field

The Tim Clark ridden SEA BATTLE has had just five races in his short career and things didn't look to promising when he only beat only one home and was behind a total of 19 others in his first two races in August of 2018. By French Derby winner Lope De Vega, he was destined for races over a distance, however, and was sent here to Chelmsford last Autumn for his third run after being gelded and transferred to Chapple-Hyam's stable. He did well, plodding on into third over a mile and two furlongs at 25/1.

After a seven month's break, more was expected at Yarmouth next time, but heavy ground didn't suit and he was down the field. Put over a mile and a half at Lingfield three weeks ago he was a revelation. Apprentice ridden and sent off at 12/1 he took it up at the furlong marker and galloped on in resolute style to beat Dreamweaver over a length. That performance is significant as the latter came out on Tuesday and won easily from a useful sort in Ad Libitum. Carrying just 3 lb more, Sea Battle has plenty of improvement in him, will relish the extra furlong of today's race and will like Chelmsford where his sire's progeny are 22 from 112 (20%).

The biggest dangers are Mark Johnson's WADACRE GALOUBET and Simon Crisford's WATERFRONT. The former is another improver and looks sure to do well now switched to a handicap in handicaps having looked the winner only to then be pipped by Intedream in a Wolverhampton maiden a fortnight ago. Waterfront has a couple of places from his last two runs to his name but firstly cheek-pieces, and then a visor was tried and they are discarded now.

At 3/1 Sea Battle can take this before moving on to a possible win in an Autumnal staying handicap.
