Verdict

This is tricky as though Stevie Thunder is eased in grade and the pick on official ratings he's not easy to win with and ideally needs further. Prime Exhibit did win this last year but has to concede weight all round and, like Stevie Thunder, isn't getting any younger. Kimbali has never won over this trip but has been in decent form over 7f and can't be ignored from a yard going well. SWIFT CEDAR won in better company at Newbury and Newcastle around this time last year and was only beaten half-a-length in a handicap on the Polytrack in February. He drops into a seller for the first time here and can land the spoils.
