Prime Exhibit showed a decent level of form in just two starts as a juvenile and ran better on his second start at the age of three last May but Roger Charlton's gelding has not been seen since then and this may be best left to the classic generation with the vote going to SATWA GOLD, who is preferred to Jack Cool. Peter Chapple-Hyam's colt stepped up on previous form when landing a maiden in decisive fashion at Yarmouth last month and was not disgraced in a Doncaster handicap subsequently on his debut in the grade when a close fourth behind Legal Legacy. He has every chance but a 6lb rise since that latest outing makes this tougher for him. Tom Dascombe's Brouhaha is capable but inconsistent; a comment that also applies to Toto Skyllachy and of more interest may be Full Victory. Rodney Farrant's gelding disappointed on fast ground at Chepstow two starts ago but runs either side of that on a more testing surface were useful and he would have every chance if the rain fell. The handicapper has finally given some relief to Kevin Ryan's Cobo Bay and he has every chance having run better in his last couple of starts but preference is for Satwa Gold. Ed Dunlop's colt won his maiden in good fashion and made a promising start to his handicap career when chasing home Wajaha at Kempton in April on only his third career start. With more improvement to come and three-year-olds tending to do well against older horses at this time of year, Satwa Gold looks the one to be on.
