Verdict

MR ANDROS has filled second place in his last two starts and this moderate contest appears to be an ideal opportunity for the five-year-old to go one better. Relight My Fire has not been at his best of late but he arrives here on a workable mark and it is interesting that Tim Easterby sends him all the way from his Yorkshire base. Others to note are Caribbean Spring and Cricklewood Green.

Verdict

MR ANDROS looks a solid candidate under Serena Brotherton after producing easily his best effort on turf when runner-up at Brighton last month. Relight My Fire is certainly well handicapped on old form, while Emily Goldfinch may have benefited from a break and could also get involved.
