Gallantry has won two of his last three starts over a mile here and another bold bid looks on the cards, but today's shorter trip may just find him out and preference goes to ADVERTISEMENT. Jeremy Noseda's colt scored over 6f at Wolverhampton before beating subsequent winner Lockantanks over today's trip at Lingfield last time and there looks more to come. Ocean Legend has every chance on the evidence of last month's fourth to Brave Echo at Lingfield and Samarinda remains on a winning mark if reproducing his best form.
