Storm to floor House.

Talking horse Nash House could leap to the head of the Derby betting market today.

He will go off a short priced favourite in the Dante Stakes after an effortless victory at Newbury on softish ground from a moderate maiden.

Conditions will be much quicker today. And at such skinny odds I'm happy to go against Peter Chapple-Hyam's colt.

Henry Cecil fields two runners in Dushyantor and Storm Trooper.

Unexposed Dushyantor is a half brother to 1993 Derby winner Commander- In-Chief and could be anything judged on a comfortable victory over Lallans in a three- horse race. However Lallans did nothing for the form yesterday and I'm prepared to forgive STORM TROOPER (3.40) a poor effort in the 2000 Guineas.

He was stuck in no man's land in the middle of the track and back pedalled when the pace quickened.

But a reproduction of his superb victory in the Feilden Stakes could be good enough.

Hopefully Kieran Fallon - badly hampered in the opener yesterday- can steer a clear route on EXIT TO RIO (4.10).

Tarawa will be a popular choice to complete a hat-trick but I will give CLAN BEN (2.35) another chance after sticking on well at Kempton's May holiday fixture.

MR OSCAR (3.05) was a big gamble at Chester but the track may not have suited this headstrong sort. He bolted up twice last autumn and his blistering pace could be decisive.

Ray Cochrane took the finale on MIDYAN BLUE (4.40) 12 months ago and they team up again with a winning chance. Top weight Celeric wasn't knocked about on

his reappearance but is held by both Floating Line and Bowcliffe Court on his third at Newmarket last September.

At Perth, PAGLIACCIO (8.25) can end a frustrating losing run. He looked all over the winner last week but was run out of it close home by Weaver George.

FIVELEIGH BUILDS (7.55) doesn't know how to run a bad race and came up against a bang in form Astings at the last meeting.

Today's faster ground will suit him better.
