In depth

Verdict

FEAST OF FIRE has changed stables since finishing second for Steve Ryder at Punchestown in October but looks a nice prospect and can go one better here under the champion. He gets 7lb from May's Worcester winner I'm Fraam Govan and Salbatore, well beaten at Ascot after winning over 1m6f at Towcester. Picture Post probably needs to improve on his two runs so far but Eastbury and Bobbyjack are interesting newcomers.
