A dearth of winning form on show here with the exception of Wolverhampton winner Century Dancer. However, she returned to her old ways when well beaten on her latest start and a chance is taken on SEE THE STORM. Pat Morris' charge wasn't beaten far at Carlisle last week and has more scope for improvement than most of these. Bodie and Acclamatory are out of sorts but have the past form to figure, while Warden Bond may get involved dropped in class. Celestial Flyer could prove best of the rest.
