    Verdict

    Sure Thing kept finding off the front end at Towcester last time having set a strong gallop. But he may not get his own way out in front here as several of his rivals also like to race up the pace. Exeter winner Fuzzy Logic is one and course and distance second Edgar Jones another and that may set the pace up for one of the hold-up horses. BELLS OF BERLIN came good over the longer trip at Wincanton last time and, on a line through Chilworth Screamer, appears to have the measure of Monderon. Argaum has the past form to figure but previous tries over this distance suggest he has stamina limitations.
