Verdict

NASHVILLE won last year's renewal and has finished second here subsequently off a higher mark. He can go in again and is preferred to stablemate English Summer. But there are plenty of others with claims including Rosslyn Castle, returning to 2m, and Kempton runner-up Ridgeway Storm. Nafaath would prefer more rain and Caledonia had an alternative engagement yesterday but Tappanappa has slipped down the weights and makes a quick reappearance having made the frame at Kempton during the week.
