Verdict

Romantic Settings is a leading contender on his latest fourth at Doncaster and he had earlier gone close at Chester with both Moorway and Arlecchino behind. The latter did much better on his debut over 7f at this track and has a shout but preference is for RESTRAINT OF TRADE. He looked badly in need of the experience on his debut at Goodwood but still managed third despite being slowly away and hanging left. He makes more appeal than stablemates Camp Floyd and Raven's Tower and gets the nod. Emulating could prove best of the rest with improvement expected.
