Full Time Score (10/11), Fire Squadron (10/3), Smokey The Bandit (15/2), Mr Solomon (15/2), Wa Wa (10/1), Ben Thomson (11/1), Suprise Package (22/1), Landing Zone (33/1), Mahler Of Autumn (80/1), Johnny Giro (250/1), Newbrook Swan (300/1), Lukewarm (300/1), Rockon Henry (400/1), Port Luna (400/1), Stormy Glenn (N/A), Blackcauseway (N/A), Brideswell Lad (N/A)

Verdict

FIRE SQUADRON shaped better than the distance beaten when seventh in a big-field novice on debut at Down Royal and, with improvement on the cards, he looks the way to go. Stablemate Mr Solomon is also open to improvement and makes each-way appeal, along with Ben Thomson, but if all is well following a 23-month absence Full Time Score could prove most troublesome.

  1. FIRE SQUADRON (IRE)
