Stormion won last year's renewal and has improved since with another couple of wins to his credit. Stablemate Delightfully also has a chance off his current mark having gone close at Wetherby last time. Too Cool To Fool found the testing ground against him last time but won over track and trip before that and is not easily ruled out while the four-year-old and Newcastle winner Madam Lilibet ran well enough behind older horses at Carlisle last time and can figure. WINTER ALCHEMY will have come on for his first start since 2011 when fifth at Musselburgh and a chance is taken Nicky Richards' charge retains his old ability in which case he looks on a decent mark.
