Storm Command was prominent until a mistake left him trailing behind at Stratford in his hurdles debut and he should improve for the experience. TWO KISSES gets the vote after comfortably winning a similar contest at Bangor where she beat Sassanian by thirteen lengths. Glen Lass has good flat statistics and wasn't disgraced over timber on her jumps debut but she makes less appeal after pulling up last time out. Two Kisses has really taken to hurdling and can pick up back-to-back wins.
