PRIME EXHIBIT defied unfavourable terms to separate a couple of higher rated rivals when runner-up in a seller here during the week. A similar effort should see him back to winning ways in this lesser company. Dansili Dutch can be forgiven a poor effort on the Fibresand as he landed a double at this track in November while the veteran Violent Velocity remains on a decent mark compared to his best form. Classy Trick was placed in a Class 7 event here last month and is preferred to Benandonner on that form.
