Travis Bickle should get involved with an official rating of 69 though the likes of Naadirr, Dalarosso and Westminster also have plenty of scope and could finish closer. However, GONE WITH THE WIND is a half-brother to five winners and Jeremy Noseda's 115,000gns colt is taken to make a winning start. He's preferred to fellow newcomers Examiner and Moneypennie, especially if the betting speaks in his favour. The remainder are harder to fancy.
