Green Fortune and GREEN POWER are both penalised for recent wins at Lingfield and Nottingham respectively and both beat subsequent winners. But the latter beat Raydiance, who got the better of both The Right Choice and Red Force One here subsequently, so John Gallagher’s colt gets the vote on that line of form. The newcomer Wafeer is a half-brother to a winning sprinter and shares ownership with Taifbalady and Motabassim while Vj Day is a $250,000 US-bred and another newcomer to note.
