Forecast

Surya (11/4), Darksideoftarnside (10/3), Winds Of Fire (7/2), C'Est No Mour (13/2), Winston C (8/1), Legal History (9/1), Aldreth (14/1), The Grand Visir (25/1), Stone The Crows (28/1)

Verdict

WINDS OF FIRE has only won a couple of small-field affairs, but impressed with how he battled on at Salisbury last time, and the handicapper may have underestimated him. Darksideoftarnside was better than the result under an overly-aggressive ride at Ascot, and is feared, with Surya another capable of bouncing back from a sub-par effort at York.
