FIREBACK makes plenty of appeal. He finished a close-up third in better company over C&D on his latest start and today's drop in class can see Andrew Balding's sprinter get his head back in front. In contrast, We Have A Dream steps up a grade after landing a double earlier this month and has a bit to find on earlier running with Collect Art. The latter remains in terrific form and went close again at York last time, while Another Try dead-heated at Goodwood last month and could also figure. Folkestone and Lingfield winner Free For All is lightly-raced and could prove the biggest danger back in this grade after running too free at Royal Ascot last time.
