Henri Parry Morgan, a winner at Worcester in August and good second under a penalty at Carlisle, sets a decent standard in this bumper and shouldn't be far away again. Heronshaw and Fannythewundahorse are interesting newcomers while Flame Of The Glen was third here in July, though hasn't raced since. King Helissio and SPITFIRE ACE both had decent form between the flags, the former winning at Maralin as recently as last month. But it's the latter that gets the nod as he's sure to be staying on here when others have cried enough and the stable has already done well with similar types this season.
