Betting Tip: Fire Fighting @ 9/1 with bet365

A wide open contest for starters and you can make a good case for at least half the 16-runner field, but the Mark Johnston-trained quarter have to be of particular interest as the stable has provided four of the last ten winners. His STARS OVER THE SEA (12/1 Paddy Power) has got into the race thanks to a 6lb rise for winning comfortably at Newbury last time, making all to score by three lengths, and his rider Franny Norton (16% strike rate here) is likely to give him another positive ride from the front. He needs backing at Betfair’s 14/1 but split stakes on him and stablemate FIRE FIGHTING (9/1 bet365), who finished third in last year’s race off 8lb higher and hinted at a return to top form when sixth (of 19) at York last time, despite being badly hampered early on.
