Green Park just about comes out best on official ratings in this claimer but he's not won in six previous visits to the course or over the trip. The going may be a bit lively for veteran Beckermet and Llewellyn but Chookie Avon won't be inconvenienced and arrives fit from an all-weather campaign. So does POLAR KITE and, having won at Wolverhampton and Lingfield in January, Sean Curran's five-year-old ran Light From Mars to a head in a handicap at Kempton the following month. If he can reproduce that form on Turf, he should take all the beating here. It's A Mans World and No Quarter have been jumping and may be best of the rest.
