EXCEEDER has the best form in the book despite finishing well behind the winner when runner-up at Yarmouth. He'd gone close on his debut at Nottingham before that and a repeat should be enough to hold off the attentions of Dont Have It Then. The latter wasn't beaten that far when sixth at Windsor and is preferred to the likes of Steel Ranger and Headlong. Jockey bookings suggest the latter is first choice ahead of stablemate and newcomer Stella Clavisque but the Godolphin debutant About Turn is out of a prolific mare and any strong support for him could prove significant.
