The versatile Storm Survivor may be a shade high in the weights at present but should give another good account back over hurdles and makes more appeal than stablemate Point Blank. Tornado Bob is struggling for form and Sainglend returns from a lay-off but MISTER DILLON will be ready for this and looks to have the best recent form. He was second at Doncaster in February and fourth off today's mark at Ascot in April. Phare Isle finished ahead of The Fonz at Ludlow last month and has each-way claims, as does Home Run if he stays the longer trip.
