Verdict

A wide-open renewal of the Eider, with Irish-raider HISTORY OF FASHION selected to build on his facile handicap debut success at Down Royal last month. He's likely to stay long distances so, provided he can keep errors to a minimum, he should go close. Eclair Surf confirmed his stamina for this sort of extreme test at Warwick 6 weeks ago so he's feared most, ahead of Achille and Danilo d'Airy.
