Verdict

Epic Storm hasn't progressed since winning a maiden race over C&D in November and is closely matched with Standpoint on their running at Lingfield last month. Illustrious Forest has more obvious claims as he found only Sir Boss too good last time and the latter won again earlier this week. Boston Blue and Mazij won on the Turf last year but have been in dreadful form subsequently so REFLECT gets a tentative vote. He's 10lb lower than when runner-up in a Beverley seller in September and will have come on for his recent debut for Derek Shaw over a shorter trip at this track.
