Epic Battle reached the frame when stepped up to this distance at Warwick but the form is nothing special. Pearl Ransom hinted at ability at Nottingham in May but hasn't raced since but Wyldfire was only beaten two lengths when fourth on his debut at Newcastle three weeks ago and will know more here. REGGAE STAR was just touched off at Ayr last month before struggling in what looked a hot maiden at York. She looks to have a good chance of getting off the mark today with Causeway Foot needing to improve again on his third at Ayr if he's to mount a challenge.
