THE VERY THING should make it third-time lucky over timber after placed efforts in better company here and at Wetherby. Primogeniture, receiving 15lb, may be the danger on his latest third at Leicester as it’s difficult to drum up much enthusiasm for any of the others. Stormingin was often placed on the Flat and did show some ability at Plumpton last month but was soon beaten at Lingfield subsequently.
