PRIMITORIO left his earlier form behind when scoring by seven lengths at Warwick. A 6lb penalty is unlikely to prevent him following up if he runs to a similar level and Ralph Beckett's charge gets the nod. Honey Meadow has plenty to find with the selection but La Tinta Bay ran well on her handicap debut over 7f at Newmarket. Those remaining have shown no worthwhile form to date though Shamardyh may do better in first-time blinkers.
