KEEP IT DARK scored over 7f at Newcastle last month and the fast ground at Doncaster was against him last time. He gets another chance in this less competitive race. Greenhead High's form has tapered off recently after a successful winter on the all-weather while Nant Saeson was still beaten 10 lengths despite finishing third at Musselburgh last time. George Fenton has won in testing ground at this track and Tadalavil slipped further down the weights last year as his long losing run continues.
