Torran Sound enjoys a 6lb turnaround in the weights with ORSM than when beaten six lengths over 3m2f at Plumpton but Laura Mongan's charge won with a bit in hand and looks a worth a bet to confirm the form and complete a double in this. Classic Case, Shantou Breeze and Craiglands are better over fences and have a poor strike rate while Wor Rom may be a light of former days and, like El Jo, has been competing in point-to-points. Watchmetail's second at Newton Abbot was his best run so far for John Panvert but he's been raised 3lb for his troubles.
