Exceptionelle showed signs of temperament when winning her debut over C&D and refused to settle when beaten at Nottingham last time. CEELO looks a safer proposition as he had a subsequent winner behind when landing a maiden at Newbury with the minimum of fuss and can follow-up on his handicap bow. Titled Gent was also a ready winner at Wolverhampton last time and he can figure ahead of recent winners Rafale and Must Be Me, who both disappointed last time.
