Forecasts

Shortcross Storm (10/3), Regaby (7/2), Pointed And Sharp (4/1), Dido (5/1), Coastal Drift (6/1), Blaze A Trail (15/2), Lure Des Pres (9/1), Celtic Joy (33/1)

Verdict

SHORTCROSS STORM did a bit too much too soon at Stratford last time and is taken to show he's still on a workable mark. The unexposed Regaby will be a threat if building on his latest Worcester third with a first-time headgear combination added now. Irish-recruit Blaze A Trail could also play a part.
