CHEDDAR GEORGE did well to win on his first start for the yard and is taken to defy a 3lb rise. Peter Chapple-Hyam's son of Pivotal should relish conditions and shouldn't be inconvenienced by this drop to seven furlongs as he showed a good turn of foot at Kempton off what wasn't a strong gallop. He may have most to fear from the well-handicapped Simple Rhythm who will surely relish returning to turf after a modest Wolverhampton run; on last season's form at this time of year he should run well. Meia Noite was a shade disappointing at Ffos Las but that may've been down to the ground and better is expected now she steps into handicap company while it'd be little surprise were Jemima Nicholas to improve for the fitting of a visor.
