Verdict

It's hard to get away from EXEMPLARY in this contest. He was beaten less than a length on his return to action in a handicap at Wolverhampton earlier this month and comes out best at the weights. Mark Johnston's charge is s confident selection. Crunched has something to prove at the distance and Kempton winner Kavaloti could prove a bigger threat on his comeback, but the remainder are out of sorts and look up against it on today's terms.
