Verdict

GREEN WITH ENVY gets the vote after showing vast improvement with a second in a Seller at Lingfield after a relatively tough maiden on debut here. This relatively cheap colt was picked up for 800 euros, he is a half-brother to the versatile mile winner Ingratitude (also a winner over jumps) and a half-brother to a triple Italian winner over a mile and more. He might prefer a slightly longer trip in time but he can see off the opposition here and take the race. Sir Lunchalott may be the primary danger if the first time blinkers can bring out more and the jockey booking is a very positive move. Bathwick Scanno was prominent for much of the race earlier in the month here but weakened within the final furlong. If he stays the trip this time he could also be a threat.
