Verdict

LIGHTNING CLOUD won five times in 2011 and didn't have much racing last season. He ended his campaign with a tremendous run in a better handicap than this at Ascot in October and Kevin Ryan should have him fit enough to make a winning return. No Poppy thrives on ground with some give as she showed in the autumn when completing a double. She's won seven times from 42 runs but is now on her highest mark though Adam Carter's claim is a bonus. Zacynthus is a fast ground specialist so his final run of last year at Ascot should be ignored but Nameitwhatyoulike has done best when the mud is flying and is unlikely to get his conditions here. The selection's stablemate Ardmay hasn't had much racing and can do best of the remainder.
