Monday banker: fast-ground lover has plenty in his favour
Richard Birch reveals Monday's hotshot
Relight My Fire
On a winning mark at present, and lots to like about the way he performed in a stronger race than this at Beverley last time.
Relight My Fire, who relishes fast ground, does well when leading or sitting close to the pace, and he should be able to get a great pitch from a favourable inside draw.
Ripon suits front-runners/prominent racers, so he has plenty in his favour.
