Verdict

STORMHOEK was a promising novice hurdler a couple of years ago before injury intervened. His stable is adept at producing horses fit and well after a lay-off and it's significant that Sam Twiston-Davies has chosen the chasing newcomer ahead of stablemate Kaybeew. He receives the nomination in a tricky little handicap with thorough stayer Rate Of Knots likely to need this after a break and course specialist Quattrocento still a couple of pounds higher than when successful over C&D in May and out of sorts lately. Piran has looked a shadow of his former self since returning from injury.
