Verdict

An impressive winner at Redcar back in May, STORM OVER (NAP) was raised 12lb but still managed to go close at Newbury on his recent return to action. Bob Cowell’s sprinter can continue his good progress in this and reverse latest running with the runner-up Erissimus Maximus. Sheepscar Lad won at Beverley last week and is 4lb higher while Harome is not out of this dropping back to the minimum trip after placing over 6f at Ripon. Tahoo won a higher grade sprint than this at Windsor in July but has ran poorly since.
