Verdict

STORMION won at Ayr earlier this month, when Harrys Whim was pulled up, and only found Seven Is Lucky too strong on a return visit to that track. He's been put up a further 3lb recently but Grant Cockburn's claim takes care of that and Lucinda Russell's charge seems sure to go close if handling the quicker ground. Oh Right was second to Saddle Pack over fences at Hexham last Sunday but has been struggling to get home over this trip under Rules while Over And Above looks high enough in the weights. Both Twiglet The Piglet and Stuff Of Dreams need to improve if they are to figure.
