Verdict

Athaakeel stayed on well in a seller over C&D last time after missing the break but Cape Of Storms, successful in that grade at Southwell last month, is better on Fibresand. Beckermet is very well handicapped but doesn't appear the force of old while Downhill Skier was well beaten off this mark on his latest start and is arguably better over 7f nowadays. WELCOME APPROACH only beat Lake Chini by a short-head over C&D last month and the runner-up is a pound better off today. But John Weymes' charge is better drawn and is fancied to complete the hat-trick.
