Verdict

The three last time out winners look the trio to concentrate on here and with GREENSWARD on a progressive run of form this season Brian Meehan's runner has the vote. Looking in need of his first run back the pick then improved to find the one too good before winning with something to spare at Wolverhampton last time. Great Charm looks a big danger after he improved from a seasonal bow to win at this venue and Zomerlust completes the trio but will need to improve from his narrow victory. A tough race but Greensward looks to be heading in the right direction.
