    Verdict

    Fire Diamond is upped a further 5lb having landed a four-timer with last week’s success at Wolverhampton. But he beat SALEH only a nose over track and trip before that and the latter re-opposes on better terms despite having won at Kempton subsequently. Bookmaker landed a lower grade handicap here recently and Ross Raith Rover opened his account with a maiden win over course and distance last month. Bridge Builder won over 6f here a fortnight ago but has scored over today’s trip before and Black Caesar also has a shout dropping back down in class.
