Verdict

OCEAN STORM has little to fear from those with experience having made the frame in his last three outings. A repeat of last month's third at Sandown in particular should be enough to open his account. The newcomers look likely to provide the main threat to James Tate's colt given Zal Zilhom is a half-brother to 7f winner Fred Willetts and the speedy Whozthecat while Zumurudah can count middle-distance winner Lee Miller among her relatives. The remainder are hard to fancy on what little they've shown to date.
