The third juvenile event on the card and the most competitive and it would not surprise to see a number of these progress on achievements to date now sent into nursery company. Few can be safely eliminated and a hopeful choice is RELIGHT MY FIRE, himself an improver last time when sent handicapping. He just went down in a prolonged struggle with Tussie Mussie on Fibresand and a reproduction of that level back on turf will see him go close. Stable companion Another Ponty is interesting from the foot of the weights, whilst the likes of Lea Valley Black, Charlie Em and Sandy's Row could all be seen to better effect stepping into handicap grade. The more exposed but consistent Yorkshire Icon should also give a decent account off topweight.
