Verdict

Exploratory landed what looked like a very moderate maiden here a fortnight ago from today's rival Fa'Iz but at least the assessor hasn't gone overboard with a mark of 75 for his handicap debut. He should again take care of the runner-up, who is now 0-23. Crackdown has bits and pieces of form on this track that could make him a threat but Karma Chameleon has been struggling off this kind of mark for some time. Representation, a winner for Godolphin at Wolverhampton in 2012, has done well enough here to merit consideration but PRESS ROOM looks the one to be on despite a long absence and a jump in the weights for beating Big Thunder at Lingfield in June. The runner-up went on to win four of his next five starts so the form looks strong enough for this.
