OCEAN STORM was beaten a length in similar company over 7f here last month. Baltic Fire was back in third with Fair Flutter well beaten and James Tate's colt is fancied to go one better in this. Lucky Visione finally won his maiden at Yarmouth in July and makes his handicap debut along with Blue Atlantic, placed over 7f on his last couple of starts. The remainder are harder to fancy unless Starlit Cantata proves suited to the longer trip.
