Recent good form is not easy to detect but Squeeze Me hails from a yard renowned for summer success and showed up well until tiring late on last time after five months off. Her bumper form was promising and the drop back to 2m4f should suit on that latest evidence. However, STORM TO PASS landed a course success last June and showed up well on a couple of other occasions and is now steadily finding her form after a 10-month absence. She was a more than respectable fourth at Towcester last time and the competent Gina Andrews will provide strong assistance from the saddle. El Toreros has disappointed rather badly the last twice for Lawney Hill but is respected on his runner-up effort behind Take The Crown at Towcester in March, though his record over hurdles is a little off-putting.
