Frameit has been in fine form here in lesser company but was well beaten by Exemplary when tried in this grade at Kempton on his penultimate start. SATWA GOLD finished in front of him on that occasion and, given he was returning from a two month lay-off, Seamus Durack's charge should be spot on now and can find the necessary improvement to take this. The consistent Rosewood Lad has more to find stepping up in class here, but Kahfre could figure off his current mark judged on his third to Coda Agency over C&D last month.
