Verdict

Having landed a hat-trick on the all-weather, GREENHEAD HIGH took advantage of a lower mark back on Turf and won at Musselburgh last week. He remains 4lb lower than his latest victory on Polytrack despite today's penalty and Dandy Nicholls' charge can make it five in a row. He beat both Roy's Legacy and Pull The Pin last time and that pair look the biggest dangers once again unless Pavers Star is ready for action on his return. The latter went close on a couple of occasion at Wolverhampton in November and looks capable of scoring off his current mark.
