There doesn't appear any point in opposing SOUNDS OF THUNDER, the winner of her last two starts over hurdles and beaten just a head in a handicap on the Flat at Wexford last week. Landenstown Pearl should chase her home as she found 3m1f much too far at Southwell after better previous form over 2m5f there and in bumpers. Searree looks best of the remainder.
