Little to enthuse about in a low-key finale so Fire King must have every chance under top weight, despite a poor showing when favourite at Brighton last month. Regal Rave has a poor strike-rate but hasn't been beaten far in any of his runs this season and should be thereabouts again, while Strike A Deal is better than he has shown in his last couple of runs. ROJO BOY has also disappointed of late but if he could recapture the form he showed in a couple of all-weather maidens earlier this year he'd take all the beating in this so gets the nod.
