Verdict

BAPTISM OF FIRE progressed from his winning debut when finishing third (behind last year's winner of this contest) at Punchestown 6 weeks ago. This slight step up in trip holds no fears and he can make it 2 wins from 3 starts in this sphere. Farouk d'Alene proved a let-down at Navan 5 weeks ago but is feared most judged on previous efforts, ahead of Vanillier.
