Forecast

Fire Brigade (3/1), Escalator (7/2), Just Hiss (6/1), Firmament (6/1), Third Time Lucky (7/1), Gossiping (8/1), Gulf Of Poets (10/1), Ventura Knight (10/1), Dragons Tail (16/1)

Verdict
A very competitive heat in prospect, with the suggestion being DRAGONS TAIL, who went close over this trip at Haydock earlier in the season and is back on a very competitive mark. With the jockey who last partnered him to success back up and claiming 7lb, we'll take the hint. There are plenty of others with chances on their best form, with Escalator a potential danger, last year's winner Fire Brigade another and both Ventura Knight and Firmament potential contenders.
  1. Dragons Tail
  2. Escalator
  3. Fire Brigade
