Verdict

King Olav will find this tougher than the race he won at Kempton in March. Mystery Drama ended last season with a double on the all-weather and is fit from hurdling while Laura Secord has plenty of scope after finishing second at Chepstow on her return. But STORM also looks capable of better with an outing at Windsor under her belt and Charlie Hills' filly gets the nod dropping down a grade with a 7lb claimer helping her cause. Lady Lunchalot is hard to catch right and Highlife Dancer is preferred having slipped down the weights and posting a better effort at Brighton last week.
