Verdict

DUKE COSIMO will start a short-priced favourite here and there will be some very long faces if he's beaten. A son of Pivotal out of the high-class Nannina, he started favourite on his debut at Nottingham but looked in need of the experience and will have come on a bundle. Another Claret has shown glimmers of ability but may have to wait for a handicap so Timeless Appeal may be the one to chase the selection home as Peter Chapple-Hyam's speedily-bred filly showed promise on her debut at Lingfield in November. Secret Empress was beaten a long way at Southwell but still looks best of the remainder.
