A wide-open contest although the likes of Seek The Fair Land and Bravo Echo are not helped by high draws. The former has the beating of both Piscean and Five Star Junior on the book, while Chilli Green had Dozy Joe and Ocean Legend behind when scoring over C&D last month but is another not ideally drawn. Crown Counsel has the past form to figure on his first start since November, while Prince Of Burma had shown progressive form over a mile before a below par effort last time. GREENSWARD has had just the one outing this year, when a close-up sixth in a higher grade handicap over a longer trip at Lingfield, and a chance is taken last September's dual 7f winner can return to winning ways here off only a 2lb higher mark.
