Verdict

FOURTH OF JULY has shaped as if his turn could be near, finding only an improving type too strong at Kelso before an eye-catching run at Carlisle last time. The step back up in trip should suit and he can strike. The consistent Follow Your Fire is respected most, ahead of Tumbling Dice, who could step up from his run here earlier in the month.
