Greeb started off in a strong Newmarket maiden and showed good speed for a long way before fading. HIGH ON LIFE was a 20/1 chance in a five-runner race on his debut at Ffos Las but made a highly encouraging start. He might even have won but for being impeded and can gain compensation. Golden Spear is fitted with blinkers after wandering around at Ffos Las and he could be a threat if they have the desired effect while the speedily-bred Pacific Trip is one to note in the betting on his debut.
