GREYEMKAY has been desperately disappointing this year but once again heads the short-list for what looks a thoroughly uncompetitive affair. He was only fourth here last week off today's mark but the even softer ground should help today and none of his rivals have much to recommend them. Lingfield third Carrera may be the pick as he has the beating of Delightful Sleep, though is giving the selection 9lb. Schottische has never won on Turf though didn't run badly at Lingfield when last seen.
