Storm Survivor has gone up 10lb for being beaten a short-head at Ludlow last time and Milo Milan also has more to do having ploughed the mud at the same track last month to dead-heat for first with Rydalis. The latter has been well beaten since so Double Dash makes more appeal off a 5lb higher mark for scoring at Lingfield on his latest start. MORNING MOMENT has been competing well in better company and will have come on for his comeback behind Relax at Doncaster earlier this month. Caroline Bailey's veteran may have another win in him off his current mark and gets the nod. Mark The Brook is another veteran who could go well and he's preferred to Turtle Thomas.
