Race Verdict

Nothing screams out here as we are dealing primarily with juvenile-based potential rather than current form. However, BONFIRE followed up a pleasing winning debut at Salisbury with a fine effort in the Group 1 Criterium International at Saint-Cloud behind French Fifteen, the form of which looks strong after last weekend's 2000 Guineas. He also handles ground with cut and merits the vote. Astrology showed up well in Group company too last term and anything the Irish champion trainer sends to these shores demands the most serious attention. Uriah Heep looks a potential improver and is not ruled out.

Selection: Bonfire        Danger: Astrology        Alternative: Uriah Heep
