Verdict

Sheila's Heart posted a much better effort when runner-up over 1m3f here on his return. He's preferred to bumper winner Philosofy and the more exposed duo of Somerton Star and Flying Author. Ridgeway Storm showed a glimpse of promise on his debut at Newmarket in August. He's since joined Alan King and should be winning this year though has to give plenty of weight to the three-year-old newcomer FROM FROST. The latter is a half-brother to three winners in France and may well be up to making a winning start for Andrew Balding's yard.
