Verdict

Fire King loves it here and came right back to form when winning a shade cosily over C&D eight days ago. He has a penalty to carry but can never be ruled out in this grade. Pytheas has place claims but John Dunlop, who has a decent chance in the previous race, can score with SALVATIONIST. He's improved since landing a seller at Yarmouth as a two-year-old and found only the prolific Camberley Two too strong at Salisbury on his latest start. Useful claimer Matthew Lawson takes the ride again here. Fast ground suits Kenswick and Pat Eddery's filly may be the pick of the remainder.
