A tricky finale but Yankee Storm, a winner on his penultimate start, is tempting with Frankie Dettori booked though the gelding has landed all seven career successes on an artificial surface. Cadmium Loch usually runs his race and is a capable sort in this grade at distances up to a mile. His competent conditional takes off a useful 7lb and the combination should go well. However, the choice is DAFFYDOWNDILLY, who was last seen on the Fibresand in December but is perfectly capable on Turf - there could still be a little more improvement to come from Hughie Morrison's filly and the booking of Mickael Barzalona suggests she'll be ready for this seasonal reappearance.
