Ertikaan finished well ahead of Yojimbo when third at Newbury and should be thereabouts at the finish again. Peak Storm is harder to fancy as he's upped in class after another good effort at Newmarket last time but this looks an easier task for CRUISER. He beat Rakaan at Windsor before finishing second off today's mark at Leicester and Bill Muir's charge can return to winning ways in this less competitive contest. Prime Exhibit's earlier win came in a seller and Storming is inconsistent.
