Green Earth has landed a three-timer for different jockeys in less than a month, including Jemma Marshall who takes the mount here. The Phelan gelding has three wins to his name at this venue and must go close again in his current rich vein of form. WHINGING WILLIE was 2l behind the aforementioned here when the pair last clashed and there should be little between them now at the revised weights. Gary Moore's Cape Cross gelding has continued to deliver a prominent account since that defeat, notably when a good second behind Balmoral Castle at Newbury last time. The form looks solid and he just gets the vote. Hawaiian Freeze caused a mighty shock last time whilst St Ignatius has lost his form totally in recent months. He is supremely well handicapped if he can rediscover something approaching decent form though.
