Spantik is penalised for winning at Lingfield back in August while both Book Review and stablemate Colonize were slowly away on their respective latest starts and never threatened. Pharoah King is a third Gosden runner likely to finish closer but FAR ROCKAWAY is also expected to improve given the Haggas filly caught the eye making plenty of late ground over 7f here on her recent debut - this extra distance will suit. She’s preferred to stable companion A Star Above with Table Mountain and I Spied other newcomers to note.
