Fire Fighting's battle with Extra Noble at Kempton was originally called as a dead-heat but he was deemed to have lost by a nose in a subsequent inquiry and demoted. Mark Johnston's charge looks sure to be in the shake-up once again but PEAK ROYALE is just preferred. The latter came up just short at Haydock last time and also makes more appeal than G Man, third over track and trip a fortnight ago without threatening the winner. Double Czech showed little progress at Newbury on his latest outing and Mawzoona may improve past him on only her second start.
