Excellent Aim is on a hat-trick after back-to-back wins at Brighton but has gone up 8lb since his latest success and is now on a career-high mark. James Fanshawe has his team firing on all cylinders and his GREEN MONKEY has already won over course and distance this summer. He improved again to score at Doncaster last time and, as he had more in hand that the official verdict suggests, is taken to come out on top back here as Indian Tinker and Irish Boy were both a little disappointing last time. Million Faces still has a bit of scope but is returning from a lengthy absence.
