    Verdict

    Fire King's only win since 2012 came in this lowly grade last year and he should be thereabouts once again after a recent third over track and trip. But BOBOLI GARDENS looks set to record his first win having finished closer at Wolverhampton on his latest start. He began handicapping last summer off a 23lb higher mark. Seraphima has also tumbled down the weights and Magic Ice has been placed off higher marks in the past.
