Verdict

All things being equal GRANDE CAIMAN should win this seller. Easily the highest rated in the field the gelding is well served by the framing of this race and although he hasn't been running up to his lofty rating he showed a spark of form last time which might have been a signal of intent. Mezarat has gone well on artificial surfaces in Italy but will have to step up on his UK debut and Kimberley Downs only has a head to find on the selection after their last clash so has to be considered on that. Budva has plenty to do at the weights but is often better when racing here than his rating suggests so must make the list but Grande Caiman should be too good.
