Sennockian Storm had looked an improving type when scoring at Ffos Las in August but she's been well beaten on all four subsequent starts. Violent Velocity generally performs over 7f and may find this stiff uphill climb against him over this trip but it shouldn't be a problem for Tilsworth Glenboy though he's 12lb higher than for his only success to date at Yarmouth. No Mean Trick and Xpres Maite haven't run for an age; Gordy Bee is still a maiden after 19 starts; and Rowan Lodge is plating class so by process of elimination this can go to CARLITOS SPIRIT, who struck form last summer when scoring over this C&D from just 1lb lower.
