Mwaleshi drops into a seller for the first time having finished second in a novices' handicap at Market Rasen last month. He should be thereabouts while Marino Prince is proven at this level and on soft ground, though his last three runs suggest he's not quite firing on all cylinders at present. PEAKS OF FIRE has a poor strike rate but undoubted ability, though his presence in this suggests that Tim Vaughan's patience is wearing a little thin now. He's a lot better than these if consenting to put his best foot forward and gets the vote on that basis alone.
