Verdict

Stormy Morning won an amateurs race here at this time last year and Sommersturm may do better now back on a winning mark. Funky Munky has won his last two outings on the Flat including a victory over 1m4f here and makes more appeal than Fire In Babylon, beaten five lengths despite finishing second over track and trip last time. Tracks Of My Tears won at this track before suffering a short-head defeat at the hands of RAINFORD GLORY. Lewis Walsh takes over the reins on the latter for this and his 7lb claim should ensure David Simcock's charge comes out best once again.
