Formscan - WALK IN THE STORM filled the runner-up spot on her handicap bow over 2m4f at Ffos Las earlier in the month and the manner of that performance suggested that Ian Williams' mare would benefit from this step up in trip. William Ewart returned from a wind operation on the same card and is capable of improving, while others to note include Invincible De Mee and Hunsbury.
