BOLLIN GRETA has plenty of weight and few secrets from the handicapper but remains in fine fettle, having posted a sequence of very solid staying efforts at Doncaster, Haydock and this venue this term. Her consistency is admirable and she's taken to get the job done and land another well-deserved success. Boss's Destination is an obvious danger after recording an eight-length success over Beat The Shower last time and should confirm the form on worse terms. He clearly relished the step up in trip and looks a useful stayer in the making for the back-to-form Swinbank team. Riptide seems to enjoy the Flat far more than chasing and also merits a place on the shortlist.
