Greenhead High is creeping up the weights without actually winning and has a bit to find here with MAZOVIAN on latest running. The latter found only Upper Lambourn, who runs earlier on the card, too good last time with Ace Of Spies well behind and Michael Chapman's charge won off a 9lb higher mark at this track last year. Fear Nothing has proved best over 5f so far and Prince Of Vasa's only win to date came over a longer trip. The latter has a bit to find with the hat-trick-seeking Beachwood Bay who completed a double here last Sunday and should make another bold bid under a penalty.
