Verdict

New Leyf edges this at the weights but hasn't won since 2011 and his three wins on the all-weather all came on Polytrack. Angelo Poliziano finished third over track and trip last time but has a difficult task on today's terms and both Fortinbrass and Gabrial's Gift look more likely winners if handling the Fibresand. No such worries concern GREENHEAD HIGH, as he landed a double over course and distance early in the year and dropped in class for his return to this venue, Dandy Nicholls' charge gets the nod.
