Verdict

Dream Again Boys scored at Lingfield in February but ran poorly when well supported on his reappearance at Wetherby in November. Pension Plan's only success came over the C&D but he's 11lb higher while Tornant is better handicapped over fences though he's been running poorly, a remark that also applies to Regal Approach. STORM ALERT didn't have much to do to score at Exeter but did it well and can go in again despite a 9lb rise as Lucy Gardner's claim negates over half of the extra burden. The four-year-old Annaluna is well enough treated but may find this too tough.
