The majority of these have a handicap mark and GOLD EDITION is well clear on that score. He's shown plenty of early pace over longer trips, including when third on the Turf at Lingfield last time, and this shorter distance can see him off the mark. Elegant Girl is next best at the weights though she's proving frustrating and headgear is applied for the first time today while the likes of Karate Queen and Script may have been placed on their latest outings but both have a stack to find at the weights. Albert Tatlock goes sprinting for the first time and could prove best of the rest.
