Verdict

Itlaaq, Forgotten Hero and recent Haydock second Guising must all carry more than allotted weight in this while Mister Impatience has been racing over further lately, though was runner-up to subsequent Epsom Derby winner Ruler Of The World over this trip in the Chester Vase in May. Charles Camoin is best over 1m2f but Bishop Roko has winning form over 1m4f, though finished just behind Hanoverian Baron in the Ebor last time. GREATWOOD's last two runs have been in exalted company and he's going to find these rivals much more to his liking. Neither the ground nor trip should be a problem on breeding so Kieren Fallon's mount gets the vote as Voodoo Prince is probably still a few pounds too high in the handicap.
