Storm Alert has the stamina to last at Ffos Las
GROUND conditions at Ffos Las are very likely to be on the attritional side of testing to say the least, but that should not bother Storm Alert in the Lindley Group Event Caterers Handicap Hurdle.
Trained by Sue Gardner just outside Exeter, the six-year-old has been in great form of late as he has won on two of his last three trips to the races and been placed second in the other.
He handles very testing underfoot ground and, though the handicapper penalised him for winning with a bit up his sleeve at Exeter on New Year's Day, there should be more to come.
Storm Alert will again be partnered by Gardner's daughter Lucy and the pair can strike again as he relished the step up in distance on Haldon Hill and he gave the distinct impression he is still progressing.

Champion jockey Tony McCoy and trainer Jonjo O'Neill, pictured, boast a great record at the west Wales course and can keep up the good work with Theatre Evening in the Stradey Park Maiden Hurdle.
On his only run to date, the five-year-old unshipped his rider when about to go close in an Irish point-to-point before changing hands for 175,000 Euros at the sales last April.
Theatre Evening is sure to have been well prepared for his first try for new connections and he can come through to win from Bob Ford, who proved to be an expensive failure when only third at Chepstow recently.
The O'Neill/McCoy axis also look to have a serious chance of doubling up in the Davies Coaches Novices' Chase, where Abnaki makes his debut over fences against only two other rivals.
Although he is not the biggest, the eight-year-old might well prove to be too agile for Lord Tomnoddy, who might well find the heavy conditions against him as his better form is on a sounder surface.
Jackie Du Plessis sends For The Staff on the long haul from Cornwall to west Wales for the Lindleygroup.com Handicap Chase and the hint should be taken as he can make up for a string of recent seconds.
