Baily Storm clearly needed last month's run at Fontwell and is potentially well treated at present. But he only gets 3lb from the much less-exposed DOM LUKKA, who remains unbeaten over fences after scoring at the Sussex track just over three weeks ago. There is probably more to come from the five-year-old and he should win again. Petroupetrov is one-paced and disappointed at Newton Abbot last time but hunter chaser could run into a place and Noble Witness won at Towcester in May before being well beaten here on his next start.
