Verdict

Luca Cumani won this in 1998 with subsequent Epsom hero High-Rise and looks to hold all the aces this year with GREATWOOD. Only beaten a short-head by Windhoek on his reappearance in the Tattersalls Millions at Newmarket, the form of that race has already been boosted and his yard has started the new season like a house on fire. Nevis represents a stable with a veritable wealth of riches in the middle-distance department and he was the only one backed to give Dawn Approach a race in last year's National Stakes. He's bred for the trip and makes more appeal than Investec Derby Trial second Another Cocktail. Elidor and Pasaka Boy have something to find.
