Await The Storm is dropped into this grade having disappointed when favourite at Ripon. Pranceleya has won a maiden race but has failed to figure in nurseries while Express finished last of 11 in a handicap at Leicester recently. The latter’s stablemate PUSSY GALORE has only raced in maiden company so far but posted her best effort over track and trip last time and the Hannon filly may prove good enough with any further progress. Joyful Dream has a shout at the weights but is more exposed than most.
