6/1
Not kept the best of form since winning at Worcester in August 2017 (2m good), but is falling in the weights and drops in grade tonight; beaten almost 11L when finishing third at Worcester latest (2m+, good).

Rather unlucky in the run when just failing to grab Percy Street over hurdles at Bangor last month (2m+ good) on his first start since January. Fell on his previous attempt over fences, but with a clear round should be positively involved.

7/4
Has won over C&D in the past (August 2016) over smaller obstacles, but has posted only fair efforts over fences since winning at Doncaster in early December (2m+ good to soft), so more needed with first time tongue-tie accompanying the hood.

Left Willie Mullins for £6,000 in November 2017 and has under-performed for his new connections, largely attributable to his reluctance to settle; tailed off back over fences at Cartmel latest and dropped 7lb in the weights.

Not looked back since winning at Newton Abbot in July 2017 (2m+ good to soft), and won again (all out) off a 1lb lower mark at Plumpton in October; makes his first start since, but fine at this track so has an obvious place chance.

9/1
Hasn't tasted success since July 2016 (for Dan Skelton) but has run okay in both starts since returning in mid-May, including when keeping on to get within 3L of Civil Unrest at Cartmel late last month (2m1f+ good).

Betting

Forecast

Atlantic Storm (13/8), No Ceiling (7/4), Vikekhal (6/1), Boss Des Mottes (9/1), Saffron Prince (12/1), New Kid In Town (40/1)

Verdict

With the Skelton horses in a rich vein of form, it's worth chancing the fencing of the inexperienced ATLANTIC STORM in what is essentially a very winnable opener. He didn't enjoy much fortune in the run on his return from a break over hurdles at Bangor last month, but should be sharper for that outing and is preferred to both Boss Des Mottes and Saffron Prince.
