Prime Exhibit's winning run came to an end in a seller at Lingfield last time but Dimitar can still be given a chance despite carrying 6lb extra for scoring over track and trip on Monday. Go Far and Khajaaly have recorded fairly recent wins at this track and both look capable of getting involved, as does Cape Of Hope on the best of last year's Turf form. MALAYSIAN BOLEH finished a decent third in a higher grade handicap at Lingfield earlier this month. But an apprentice's claim may just give him the edge in this and Simon Dow's colt looks set for a return to winning ways.
