SOMMERSTURM beat little when scoring here last week but this looks even less competitive and he gets the nod to defy a penalty and go in again. Tram Express has a shout off his current mark though his only win so far came over a longer trip while Turjuman will find this tougher than the amateurs race he won over track and trip last time. Crimson Monarch was placed over 1m6f here last month but ran below par at Kempton earlier in the week and the remainder all arrive out of form and are hard to fancy as a consequence.
