Verdict

Sennockian Storm lost his way in the autumn and may be best watched returning from a break. The maiden Formulation also has a bit to prove this year, while the potentially well-treated Tanforan often needs a couple of runs to put him straight. Gordy Bee has continued to disappoint but POSTMAN finally came good again at Southwell earlier this month and, with the quicker surface no problem, is fancied to follow up here off a 4lb higher mark. Regal Rave, a promising third at Kempton after a length lay-off, may be best of the remainder.
