GREATWOOD could only manage third when sent off favourite at Salisbury last time. He had a subsequent winner in front and is just preferred to Newmarket fourth Layl and Sandown third Harry Bosch. Interior Minister and Kelvingrove are likely improvers and there's a handful of newcomers worth monitoring in the betting. They include Enobled and Makin along with Takaathur but Stasio was purchased for 280,000gns in April this year and the half-brother to four winners in North America could prove the biggest threat.
