LOVING HOME is impossible to oppose. Beaten only a short-head in a Sandown handicap last time, John Gosden's colt should have no trouble opening his account in this company. New Reaction's eight length defeat at Kempton in June is the best form on offer from the remaining trio though he finished tailed off at the same track last time.
