IRONS ON FIRE looks like he should just shade this on collateral form. He reversed earlier running with Rowan Ridge when scoring over C&D last month and his defeat of King's Colour at this track last time also gives him the beating of Wisecraic. The latter won over 1m2f here earlier this month, but has 10lb to find with the selection on today's terms, while Ay Tay Tate has been running well on the Fibresand lately although one win in 33 starts doesn't boost confidence in his chances.
