THOMASGAINSBOROUGH is in all the top races and, like most of his stablemates, will have needed his reapearance at Dundalk. His pedigree suggests he was always likely to make a much better three-year-old over middle-distances so it was a bonus that he scored as a juvenile. He can take this though Cameron Highlander made a big impression when landing what looked a very strong Redcar maiden and this expensive Galileo colt has the makings of a high-class performer. Goldoni returned to action with a good run behind Kingsdesire at Doncaster while Mister Music won over an extended mile here in September, though he only had three to beat. Both Cravat and Unex Michelangelo will need to improve but both are capable of doing so for their powerful yards.
