Azari was an early casualty at Exeter on Wednesday when easy to back. He’s clearly not one of his stable’s brightest stars and looks worth opposing until showing signs of ability. BURNING HEAT has to be the selection as he’s only found one too good here and at Kempton so far when finishing close up. Tynecastle Park was only beaten a couple of lengths when third in a maiden here at the start of the month but newcomer Ocean Eleven was rated far superior on the Flat and could figure if fully wound up.
