Readily accounted for his rivals (Vaal, this trip, graduation plate) last month, ending losing run; one of his best runs so far came when second here last February; makes handicap debut; should get involved

Stepped up to 7f in a handicap last month when seventh beaten 2l; form is given substance by race throwing up two next-time-out winners; has winning form at this course; productive partnership with M Yeni, who retakes the mount; likely to be thereabouts despite being up in class

His five wins have all been over this trip; creditable sixth in a handicap at Vaal on Tuesday over this trip; makes little appeal as faces a stiffer task

Verdict

There should be plenty of market support for Fire 'n Flames, and Halberdier isn't out of it. However, SILVER TUDOR is a firm choice. He has won twice over this CD.
