Verdict

Act Your Shoe Size won over 7f in soft going at Catterick in July and has been keeping better company than this since. STORMY WHATEVER has also won in testing ground at Catterick and, as that maiden win was head and shoulders above his other three runs, he looks a genuine soft ground performer so James Given's colt gets the vote. Silvas Romana has continued to rise in the weights without winning since her Chepstow victory in August and Sinai's winning run came to an end at Hamilton last time in similar conditions to today.
