Verdict

Creek Island's one success came in a Class 6 handicap on soft ground at Hamilton and he's 6lb higher. Conspiritor ran well when third in this grade at Sandown and didn't enjoy much softer conditions at Goodwood. Clap Your Hands didn't show much in his first campaign nor on his reappearance at Brighton but GREELEY has a chance dropping back to his best trip. From the in-form Rod Millman yard and with Charlie Bennett also going well, he completed a hat-trick over 7f/1m last summer and has been racing over 1m2f throughout this season.
