Verdict

Automated has been very highly tried this year but was well beaten in a maiden on his latest start. Fire Fighting is coming down the weights and was fancied at Goodwood last week. He should be back in the winner's enclosure soon while there should be plenty more to come from Windsor scorer Mythical Madness and Chester winner Prince Of Stars, who make their handicap debuts. Zee Zeely, Comedy King and Hedge End aren't out of this either but it will probably take a decent performance to lower the colours of HOOP OF COLOUR. Lady Cecil's filly overcame trouble in-running to complete her double at Pontefract last month and bounces off this fast surface.
