Great Expectations was only beaten a short-head at Lingfield last time but is 5lb higher now. Edge was well beaten on his reappearance and first start for Bernard Llewellyn at Chester but has a chance on last year's form and fellow three-year-old Can't Change It could also figure. Exzachary won on soft ground at Warwick on his return but never figured in this grade at Haydock on Saturday. PEAK STORM has winning form over course and distance on heavy going and shaped with a degree of promise over a mile here last month. Dropped a couple of pounds since, John O'Shea's charge may be ready to strike again.
