It's now fourteen runs since his last win in 2021 but he arrives in good nick, travelling with plenty of zest when eighth in a good-quality handicap at Goodwood last week. Eased 2 lb and this is easier.

Ended a long losing run in 5-runner course handicap (1m) in June, sticking to the task. Brushed aside at Hamilton 19 days later.

Low-mileage 5-y-o who showed improved form to get off the mark on the back of an 18-month absence when scoring with a bit up his sleeve at York in June. Up 9 lb and matched that level when third upped to 10f at Sandown a month ago.

10/3
Useful form for third win in what was a very productive juvenile campaign at Epsom in September. Didn't really relish step up to 10.3f but still ran well in the Dee Stakes on return. Failed to match that level twice since.

Improved last term, winning back-to-back York handicaps during the summer. Has generally held his form since, a slowly-run race not helping his cause at that venue a fortnight ago. Cheekpieces on.

Has looked ungenuine but doing little wrong at present, overcoming a pace bias to win successive races in July. Excellent fourth at Goodwood a week ago and likely to give it another good shot.

Forecasts

Electrical Storm (13/8), Mr Mccann (10/3), La Trinidad (5/1), Young Fire (6/1), Dutch Decoy (8/1), Fame And Acclaim (16/1), Gioia Cieca (40/1)

Verdict

Having made a winning return from a lengthy absence at York, ELECTRICAL STORM backed that up when third from his revised mark at Sandown and, given his profile, there may well be more to come from him. La Trinidad and Dutch Decoy head the opposition in what is a tightly-knit handicap.
