Versilia Gal has been a disappointment on her three latest starts after completing a double in early summer while Light Particle looks to have been overestimated by the assessor. WHIP STORM makes his nursery debut and is given the nod as his trainer does so well with similar types and there were signs of encouragement at Dundalk last time. Sakhib should be suited to this extra furlong after failing to show the necessary pace for 6f here last time but Lake Louise is out of the handicap which won't aid her cause.
