49-12OR: 83D
7/1

Finished last of four at Doncaster (7f, good to firm) latest but didn't run a bad race all things considered; that said, is probably high enough in the weights following May's Brighton win (7f); is likely to handle the Epsom undulations/camber.

11/10

A progressive 3yo who has drawn considerable benefit for the introduction of a visor; now rated 10lb higher than when scoring at Brighton (7f, good to soft) in June; beaten ¾L by Revich over C&D a fortnight ago; solid.

Brighton regular; twice a 7f winner at the south coast venue, including when beating Dream Catching by 1¾L in April; turned in a lacklustre performance there latest; firmly in the mix (off this mark) over C&D last September.

11/4

Ran on well when beating Colonel Frank by 2L in this race in 2018 and brought his Epsom record to 2-2 with a decisive C&D win last week; carries a 4lb penalty which is unlikely to be a barrier to further success; very tough to beat.

6f Kempton juvenile scorer; raised his game on turf when beaten a short head by Delegate The Lord on rattling quick ground at Bath (5½f, firm) 15 days ago; 3lb higher with blinkers applied in a much tougher contest.

14/1

Admirably consistent, albeit is stronger on the AW (4-19) than on turf; 4lb above her last winning mark when beating Seraphim by 1L at Chelmsford (7f, Cl 5 fillies' handicap) in May; stablemate of Mont Kiara; place chance at best.

Forecast

Verdict

John Quinn has a strong chance in the opener with Ascot Week and assuming that all goes to plan a quickfire double is on the cards courtesy of the capable nine-year-old BIG STORM COMING. He was partnered by today's rider Cieren Fallon when a decisive C&D winner last week and the incurred 4lb penalty is unlikely to be a barrier to further success. Furthermore, he not only defends his race title (2018 winner) but also an unbeaten record (2-2) at this track. The progressive Sir Busker rates as the likeliest danger despite taking a continued hike up the weights.
