    Verdict

    Peak Storm was only beaten a head over track and trip in between winning a couple of races over a mile here but is raised a 8lb for this. ROYAL NORMANDY is preferred given he won a higher grade contest at Sandown over today's distance recently. Wolverhampton winner Indian Affair has a 5lb rise negated by Tom Marquand's allowance while My Son Max will take advantage of his slide down the weights before long.
