Verdict

Pippa Greene is a possible in this with Nico de Boinville taking off 5lb as he already looked nicely treated. Natural High has been running on the Flat but Jolly Roger was well beaten in a claimer at Ffos Las on his latest start while The Weatherman is going backwards. Faith Jicaro isn't without a chance but Smadynium appears to have lost his way and TIDAL WAY may be a more interesting proposition. He did well as a four-year-old last season and is already a course and distance winner. Charlie Longsdon's gelding can shrug off an absence to take this.
