Verdict

STORMING BERNARD had Bountiful Girl behind at Newmarket two runs ago and certainly wasn't winning out of turn at Brighton earlier this month. His earlier form in maidens is rock-solid and Alan Bailey's gelding can follow up back in a nursery. Sound Advice has been highly tried since beating a subsequent winner at Musselburgh in June and looks a danger as he finished ahead of Sandown scorer John Lightbody in the Superlative Stakes at Newmarket in July. Shamrocked also has claims on the form book but Barolo Top looks weighted out of this.
