In depth

Verdict

LORD OF THE STORM beat Byrd In Hand, who runs in the previous race, over C&D in April only for the latter to take revenge last time. Bill Turner's charge makes most appeal in this ahead of another course winner in Penang Cinta. The latter can figure with a recent run under his belt, however, while Resplendent Alpha makes a quick reappearance having finished third in a better race at Newbury on Saturday. Wind Star may be ready to strike off his current mark and there's not much between Cahala Dancer and Prince Namid on latest running at Bath.
