Verdict

Maypole Class and Prudhomme are both also engaged at Ascot and the former in particular would have a chance wherever he turns up. A winner on heavy ground at Lingfield, he only just failed to hold off Sir Ivan over the course and distance last month and the winner runs earlier. The aptly-named STORM ARISING has had four of his last five starts around here and ran very well when runner-up in a Class 2 handicap on Boxing Day so is an obvious contender and gets the nod. The front-running Midnight Midge has really found his form, making all for a comfortable victory here in November to complete a double though the ground is an unknown factor, as it is for top-weight Larkbarrow Lad.
