Ante-post favourite for the Lincoln but ran no sort of race and clearly found conditions a struggle. Conditions should be less extreme here and likely he's on a good mark. Wears a first-time tongue-tie.

Still 2lb higher than his last winning mark and continued run of poor form when struggling in the Lincoln. Handles cut in the ground but not shown enough to be recommended here.

Finally off the mark at the sixth attempt in a maiden at Nottingham in August and ran okay at Yarmouth on first handicap start. Not obviously well treated and needs to have improved in the interim.

Finished sixth in the Cambridgeshire here at the end of last year and should strip fitter for a recent return on AW. Handicap mark workable now just 1lb above his two highest winning marks and not dismissed.

Rattled off a hat-trick last year but just signs the handicapper has caught up with him on his most recent runs. Consistent at least so not without place claims.

Two wins from six starts as three-year-old and ran well to win at Chelmsford last time, holding on in game fashion. Yard could not be in better form but this colt is unproven on soft ground.

Three wins from eight starts last year (placed a further three times) and he's a strong travelling type in his races. Second string on jockey bookings is a little off-putting but on a workable mark still.

Won twice at Goodwood last year and effective on undulating tracks and soft ground. Handicap mark probably needs reducing before he's of interest and didn't show much on debut for this yard last time out.

Sole win came in a maiden at Salisbury. Well beaten on four subsequent starts and he was a beaten on odds-on favourite in a three-runner contest last time. Hard to fancy.

Has won six of his 16 starts since joining this yard and creeping back down to a more realistic handicap mark now. Has needed his reappearance run in seasons gone by though.

Not seen since June and encountering much different conditions. However lightly raced and consistent performer who has won fresh in his last two campaigns. Market support would be significant.

Won three from four races at the start of last summer and bounced back on final start at Newmarket when a good fourth behind the subsequent Lincoln winner. Could be on a very nice handicap mark and interesting runner if ready on return.

Won a maiden on turf but not won on turf since and gives the impression he's better on a faster surface than what he will get here.

Not won for nearly two years now but that run did come on heavy ground at least. Still 12lb higher due to the occasional placed effort and others likely to be better handicapped in here.

Former Aidan O'Brien inmate, sole turf win came at the undulating Epsom with plenty of cut in the ground. Kept busy over the winter and handicapper starting to give some relief. Not ruled out with talented claimer removing 5lb.

Two starts from 35 starts tell its own story and often flatters to deceive, travelling well before finding very little or traffic. Probably wants better ground than this.

Two-time winner here (once on July course) in her career but record would suggest she would want faster ground than what she will get here. Still well above her last winning mark and opposable.

Very inconsistent sort but finds himself on a workable handicap mark, 7lb lower than for his last win. Despite having a course win to his name, he's been unplaced on his other six runs here and not certain to back up a recent promising effort on AW.

Only four wins from 45 starts but has won at pattern level and he's found some form on AW lately. Interesting runner if he can build on that returned to turf.

Betting

Forecast

Chiefofchiefs (6/1), Mafaaheem (6/1), Roller (13/2), Sinfonietta (8/1), Fire Brigade (10/1), Almoreb (12/1), Plutonian (12/1), Examiner (14/1), Brilliant Vanguard (20/1), Frank Bridge (20/1), Secret Art (20/1), Constantino (20/1), Red Tea (25/1), Isomer (25/1), The Warrior (25/1), Glory Awaits (33/1), Withernsea (33/1), London (33/1), Noble Peace (66/1)

Verdict

FIRE BRIGADE was well backed before a disappointing run in the Lincoln last time but he's better than that and Michael Bell's charge may be able to reward his supports' loyalty with a win here. Chiefofchiefs finished just behind the selection on his final start of 2016 and could be well handicapped also. Examiner is effective off this sort of mark and is in no way dismissed.
