M J WOODWARD continues to improve and made it three wins from his last four starts at Wolverhampton last time. A dual course winner, Paul Green's charge is worth sticking with back on the Fibresand. Greenhead High was only fourth on his latest start on Polytrack but a previous win over track and trip could give him the edge over the likes of George Fenton, Rose Garnet and Romanticize. The latter trio have all been in decent form on the Polytrack but have no form on this surface to speak of. Both Lord Buffhead and Putin handle the surface but look high enough in the weights at present.
