Verdict

Irish raider All Ablaze will need to break quickly from a high draw if he's to take up his usual prominent position and confirm last season's running at Dundalk with compatriot Almanack. Normal Equilibrium is proving hard to win with but had New Fforest, Jillnextdoor and Equitania behind when fourth at Sandown last time. Recent Kempton winner Storm Moon is upped a couple of grades under a penalty but Bispham Green should go well from the bottom of the handicap. However, at the other end of the weights, COSMIC CHATTER is expected to go close having beaten the odds-on Liber in impressive fashion at Musselburgh last season. David Barron's charge is taken to make a winning return in this.
