Verdict

Calculated Risk ran well in a Listed event at Sandown earlier this month, despite only finishing sixth, and will be more at home in this company. The same comment applies to Stormy Weather, who failed to figure up against much higher-rated rivals in the Fighting Fifth at Newcastle last time. But PAS TROP TARD is preferred after finding only Zaplamation too good at Wetherby with Lexi's Boy and Dumbarton well beaten. Oscar Tanner and Walser are both taking a big step up in class for this.
