Greenhead High steps up in distance having won over 5f here last month while Thatcherite takes a drop in trip after winning over the extended mile here on Thursday. Course winners Chookie Avon and Valmina look high enough in the weights at present so this could prove a re-match between Bahamian Lad and HAWK MOTH. The former made all over C&D last time when holding off a late flourish from the latter, but Chris Catlin is likely to make his run earlier on this occasion and can reverse the placings on better terms if doing so.
