I am assuming the start of the battle as being per the actual, with the Eugen targeting the Exeter.
Any thought anybody?

If she cannot stretch out the British force that way, she keeps her distance until nightfall. When visual sighting distance falls, she finds out whose search radar is better. That would be my plan at any rate.
