Verdict

STORMBOUND may have struggled to follow up his victory in a Wolverhampton maiden but as his yard are in such flying form it may be worth giving him a chance in a race where few make realistic appeal. Hail Promenader stays further than this and can be a difficult ride so Graham Carson will have his skills thoroughly tested. My Own Way Home made all to win a modest event at Lingfield on Saturday and is clearly in form. Hazel Dukes is one of the more established riders on view and she is aboard Boy The Bell. Ollie Pears' six-year-old put up a solid effort on his most recent visit to Leicester and any overnight rain certainly won't inconvenience. Rio Cobolo appears well treated at present but is badly out of form.
