Fire Fighter is not the most straightforward but should be thereabouts again having won over a longer trip at Kempton last time. Rosewood Lad, If I Were A Boy and Ryton Runner all posted better efforts when placed on their latest starts and are worthy of consideration, but the vote goes to MAZAGEE. She was having only her third start of the year when winning with plenty in hand at Lingfield a week ago and has enough scope to defy a 6lb penalty. Kempton third Tarkeeba makes her handicap debut and should go well.
