Along with One Million, Forster Street was behind the improving Asteroid Belt when the latter was a close third at Kelso 10 days ago and Tim Easterby's charge also had a rear view of Hulwa at Sedgefield. Byronic Hero had the highest rating of these on the Flat but was essentially a sprinter and ended up finishing tailed off over 1m2f in a seller at Redcar. DONT TAKE ME ALIVE won over 1m4f on soft ground at Folkestone in July and made a promising start over timber when fourth at Market Rasen. That experience should stand him in good stead here and he can get the better of Irish raider The Ring Is King.
