Obey The Rules (11/10), Heart Of A Lion (7/2), Muse Of Fire (6/1), Judex Lefou (7/1), Chapati (12/1), Massini Man (18/1), Zamani (20/1)

Verdict

MUSE OF FIRE went well for a long way on his recent comeback run over 2½m here and might be worth siding to build on that now dropping back in trip. His new stablemate Massini Man has a good record when fresh so he's a possible threat, while Heart of A Lion is an interesting chase newcomer from the Alan King yard.
