Plenty with claims in this including Mr Lando, a runner-up here two runs ago to Bobs Her Uncle who runs in the previous race. Time Square also has a shout on his earlier victory over track and trip while both Shirataki and Thankyou Very Much have been placed here of late and are others to consider. Arashi is better over further and Chepstow winner April Ciel is unreliable, but STORM is worth another chance taking a big drop in class after a fifth at Newbury on her handicap debut. That was her first outing since March so much better is expected from Charlie Hills' filly in this.
