Verdict

It was fast ground when Bling King finished runner-up to Manchestar here but he's been well beaten since. Kindlelight Storm has recorded a four-timer at Wolverhampton and is upped a further 4lb for only his second start on Turf. But last month's Newcastle winner Hussar Ballad can race off the same mark as when second at Haydock last week and he makes more appeal. AL FURAT has been competing over longer trips since winning this off a higher mark back in 2012. The drop back in distance could prove significant and Ron Barr's charge gets the vote with the remainder all struggling for form at present.
