Verdict

GOLD TOWN needed only to be pushed out to make a winning start over 5f at Newbury. This extra distance should not be a problem and the Godolphin colt can defy a penalty. He's preferred to Queen's Sargent of the others with racecourse experience. The 120,000gns purchase Shaheen is a related to a couple of winners and Rufus King is another newcomer to note along with Far Dawn and Indomeneo.
