Twice The Storm from the Sean Tarry stable may be the horse to close off the meeting.

He was doing his best work at the finish when third over 1160m on the Standside course last time.

The son of Twice Over should have no issues with the rise to 1450m. He has dropped to a competitive rating and can return to winning ways in this line-up.

Trainer Paul Matchett sends out Mount Pilatus in Race 9. He has decent consistent form lines to his credit.

He stayed on when third over 1160m on the Standside course last time.

He jumps from a good draw of four and if not too far out of his ground turning for home, he can notch up his second-career victory.

Here’s what the Trainers have to say:
