ROMSDAL showed promise on his debut at Doncaster last month. Third over 1m2f, John Gosden's colt will probably start a short-price to open his account over this longer trip. Invasor Luck and Big Orange are others likely to appreciate the extra distance having both run well over a mile last term. The former went close at Lingfield and makes most appeal of that pair. Amourita and Dream Big were placed at this track on their respective debuts last month and look likely to prove best of the remainder.
