          Verdict

          Drawn against the stands rail, a case can certainly be made for Greenhead High who has already won on the Polytrack and the Fibresand since the turn of the year. But, after a pipe-opener at Warwick, it's fair to assume that NORTHERN BOLT will be a lot straighter here and he can bounce back to winning ways on his favourite ground as he's 4lb lower than when a good third on similar going at Ayr in the autumn. Rowan Spirit should be approaching peak fitness now but Prince Of Vasa doesn't have a great record on turf and the lack of a recent run may count against Meandmyshadow and Secret City.
