HIDDEN GOLD returned to winning ways when stepped up to 1m4f at Doncaster. Open to further progress, the Godolphin filly can shrug off a 4lb rise and go in again. Only Orsenfoolsies is upped in class off an 8lb higher mark as he bids for a hat-trick while Rocket Ship takes on better opposition having landed the odds in a lowly maiden at Catterick. Legal Waves went close in similar company over 1m2f in June but has made a mess of much easier opportunities in maiden races subsequently.
