3 pts win FIRE BRIGADE 8/1 ( at least 12 firms)
Amix Silver Bowl H'cap

In its various different names down the years this race is arguable the most interesting 1m 3 year old handicap run before Royal Ascot. Fire Brigade is certainly no Group horse in disguise but is a good, progressive solid handicapper who has an excellent chance of defying a 7 lb rise in the ratings today. The hike is for winning a Newmarket handicap in game style after travelling well for most of the race. That was in soft ground but even if the predicted rain does not arrive today his good penultimate run was on fast ground and the stable is in healthy form.

Lost - 3 pts
