410-5OR: 67
8/1

Has a bit to prove as he is dropping in trip on his second start since leaving Joseph O'Brien. Has plenty of winners in his pedigree but obviously unlikely to live up to the billing, so possible he'll struggle to concede so much weight to the rest.

Not shown much in 9 previous starts and needs to up her game after another modest effort in her latest outing. Others much more convincing.

Posted two poor efforts this season and is exposed as being of very ordinary ability. The switch to a new yard will need to have transformed her - another to view with caution in the betting plans.

79-4OR: 52
16/1

Won three times during his time racing in the UK, so at least knows what he has to do to get his head in front. Holds the likes of Markus Twain after their encounter last time out, so merits a betting check in a weak event like this.

Still unexposed after just four previous starts but has shown very little to suggest he's a winner in waiting and looks one to be wary of now that cheekpieces have been dispensed with.

Comes into this on the back of a couple of encouraging efforts (met trouble in running both times and may have fared better on each occasion if granted a clear run). Good chance of atoning in this company.

6/1

Back on the Flat after a couple of low-key runs over hurdles, but posted a decent effort over C&D in June (Specific Gravity held on that occasion); so is another that merits scrutiny if available at attractive enough odds for a place in the frame.

Winner of a modest handicap at Wolverhampton on debut for his current yard last month and also highly respected after a solid run over C&D prior to that. Has to merit a place on the shortlist on that evidence.

Been on a steady downward spiral for a while and very hard to see even the drop into claiming company sparking a revival. Best left to her won devices.

In fair form of late but does need to run better than he did on the AW at Dundalk last month. Decent place claims if running to the level of his previous two outing, though. One to monitor in the betting.

38-10OR: 53
7/1

Third of five in a slightly better quality claimer last time out, a repeat of which would give the filly claims. Would be carrying more weight in a handicap, so worth considering if there is sufficient market interest.

Shown nothing in either of her previous two starts to suggest that she is capable of making it third time lucky on a racecourse. Others readily preferred.

Betting

Forecast

Sbraase (9/4), Match My Fire (11/2), Lucky Red (6/1), Muroor (6/1), Dragon Girl (7/1), Specific Gravity (15/2), Renaissance Man (8/1), Double Czech (16/1), Spice Blossom (25/1), Molly Kaye (25/1), Markus Twain (50/1), Caminel (66/1), Annagassan (66/1)

Verdict

MATCH MY FIRE has sound claims in a weak even such as this and gets the nomination as the one to side with on this occasion. Sbraase and Muroor don't have too much to find to get competitive, while the likes of Double Czech and Lucky Red could also be interesting options for an each-way punt.
