Verdict

This could concern recent winners By Storm and Silver Mont, with the last named just getting the verdict, Revolve may do best of the rest. The selection displayed improved form when dropped to a mile at Southwell last time, smoothly beating a similar field to today's. He was always comfortably holding the runner up and with the extra distance not a problem he should make it back to back victories. By Storm landed a Nottingham seller on softish ground last time, relishing the step up to this trip. She hasn't really proven herself on the all-weather but does appear to have improved and should be involved in the finish. Revolve landed a couple of weak contests earlier in the year and hasn't done too badly since. This one should be capable of fighting for some place money. Justcallmehandsome always warrants respect at this level, but Silver Mont does look to be progressing and he gets our vote.
