Forecast

Kyllukey (7/2), Storm Lightning (6/1), Slipalongtrevaskis (6/1), Dodgy Bob (6/1), Krazy Paving (6/1), Elliot The Dragon (7/1), Dalness Express (7/1), Alligator (15/2), Deer Song (10/1), Brother In Arms (14/1), Stopdworldnletmeof (18/1), Mr Potter (20/1)

Verdict
Despite his advancing years, Storm Lightning has plenty going for him. He is respected along with the likes of Dodgy Bob, Slipalongtrevaskis and Stopdworldnletmeof. However, this may be the day when ELLIOT THE DRAGON finally get his head in front. He ran well to be third off this mark five days ago and is turned out again quickly, presumably in the expectation of another bold show.
  1. Elliot The Dragon
  2. Storm Lightning
  3. Slipalongtrevaskis
