Stormy Weather has been in terrific form for Brian Ellison but is possibly better with more give in the ground and has gone up a further 4lb since being beaten by Palawi over C&D last time. Higgy's Boy is starting to look well handicapped and finished ahead of Danceintothelight over further at Musselburgh last time but this may be too sharp for Arctic Court and Into Wain had his limitations exposed at Kelso earlier this month. BEIDH TINE ANSEO needs to be delivered late but this should be ideally suited by the long straight here and can pounce late under Campbell Gillies to end his barren spell.
