Verdict

STORM STEPS arrives on the back of a career-best Dundalk victory and is well treated at the weights too so looks the way to go here. Cliff House is another who figures on a handy mark and is not taken lightly despite his absence with in-form maiden Indignation another who is worth a second look.
