Forecast

Awesomedude (85/40), Firlinfeu (4/1), Firewater (8/1), Bollin Joan (17/2), Sudona (10/1), Daawy (11/1), Flood Defence (12/1), Ours Puissant (18/1), Deinonychus (20/1), Hooflepuff (22/1), Nietzsche (28/1)

Verdict

FIRLINFEU couldn't have been more impressive when bolting up in first-time cheekpieces at Ayr just under a fortnight ago. That was a career-best effort, and the way he won suggests that the 8 lb rise he received may not be enough to prevent the follow up. Firewater has been most consistent this year and he's taken to chase the selection home, ahead of the bang-in-form Awesomedude.
