Baily Storm was well beaten off a higher mark at Stratford having scored at Worcester before that and April's winner at Plumpton, Ballyvoneen, has failed to figure in a couple of subsequent starts. High Ron is yet another on the comeback trail as he was still beaten a distance when third at Southwell though he makes more appeal than the out of form Balinroab. That leaves RUDIGREEN, who failed by only a head at Worcester last week when attempting to land a hat-trick and can go one better in this.
