Timeform on Stormborne Thunder

#11 Ragoon - Vaal R3 (12:45 BST)

Ragoon improved as expected from his debut, finishing a good third at Turffontein 12 days ago and, with further improvement expected on just his third career start, he is expected to open his account. Sakura was well beaten last time, but looks the next best on form if able to bounce back, while Ready To Strike is also respected.

#1 Stormborne Thunder - Vaal R4 (13:20 BST)

Stromborne Thunder continued her run-to-run progression when finishing third at Turffontein 18 days ago. It is interesting that connections are stepping her up considerably in trip now, and she looks the one to beat here with the extra distance in her favour. Pin Up Fold looks a worthy challenger, while Banana Republic can also be involved.

#1 Tortola - Vaal R7 (15:05 BST)

Tortola has had plenty of chances now, but she still sets a good standard in this field, and a repeat of her latest second place finish at Turffontein should suffice. Sing And Dance is even more exposed, but commands respect, while Rubix is also worthy of a mention.
