    Verdict

    Ask The Guru last won over track and trip in 2017 and has undergone wind surgery since last in action while Hurricane Alert has a poor record on Turf but has been in good form on the all-weather. Waneen has done all his winning so far on the all-weather tracks and Storm Lightning was well beaten at Bath recently and finished behind COOL STRUTTER when the latter won over 6f here in October. John Spearing’s charge should be sharper for a recent reappearance over course and distance and has every chance on these terms.
