Verdict

Dancing Storm is a consistent sort and only 4lb higher than when successful over C&D last month. Shesha Bear is another recent C&D winner that can't be ignored, while Filun hasn't finished out of the frame in his last seven starts though continues to creep up the weights without winning. Kempton second Beat Route is worth opposing off a higher mark and The Bells O Peover is struggling for form at present but there are possibilities about BROUHAHA. Tom Dascombe's gelding is now 5lb lower than his last win on turf and recent efforts at Haydock and Bath suggest he's back in the groove.
