In depth

Verdict

Stormy Morning beat Baan a length over 2m at this track last time with Blazing Desert back in fourth. The winner should be in the firing-line again but DARING DAMSEL is just preferred over this shorter trip. The latter had a subsequent winner behind when third on her latest start over 1m4f here and a leading amateur is back on board today. Blizzard Blues has a chance on his best form, though hasn't won since 2009, and it's been a while since Worth A King'S last raced on the Flat.
