GREEN HOWARD has been running well off this mark in better company recently and may well be good enough to give weight to inferior rivals, though there is sure to be interest in recent Folkestone winner Konstantin with Fallon on board. Track specialist Rough Rock hinted at a revival last week while Kuanyao, The Noble Ord and Roedean have the ability to make the frame. Barwick, however, continues to pay the price for his early-season form and this looks a tough ask for Ceremonial Jade after a lay-off as he's much better on the Polytrack nowadays.
