NEVIS ON THE CLASSIC TRAIL

The Aiden O’Brien-trained Nevis was the impressive winner of the Lingfield Derby Trial L. on Saturday (11th May), making virtually all the running to win by nine lengths.

The son of DANSILI was bred by Orpendale, Chelston and Wynatt and boasts a Classic pedigree, his dam Moonstone the winner of the Irish Oaks Gr.1 and hailing from the family of Classic performers Honolulu, Memphis Tennessee and Catcher In The Rye.

Also over the weekend, DANSILI was narrowly denied a French 2000 Guineas winner when Dastarhon was second by a neck in the Poule d’Essai des Poulains Gr.1, whilst the lightly raced Whippy Cream (DANSILI) was third, on only her second start, in the Lingfield Oaks Trial L.

Elsewhere, DANSILI's son RAIL LINK also unearthed a three-year-old with Classic potential when Schulz was second by a head in the Derby Trial L. at Baden Baden.
