Verdict

Ya Bon was third in a non-seller over a longer trip here last time and that looks better form than Symphony Of Pearls' second at Stratford. Flanagans Field would have a chance on his best form but he's got nowhere near since his second at Chepstow last September. SWAMPFIRE has to concede weight all round but may well be up to the task. He's back in the right grade and clearly failed to handle the heavy ground when behind Flanagans Field over further here three runs ago.
