A winner over 7f at Kempton, Alexa Rose was beaten less than a length under a penalty over the same distance at Lingfield last time. But ST PETERS BASILICA missed out by only a neck over today’s trip at Doncaster earlier in the month and John Gosden’s colt looks set to open his account in this lesser company. Revolutionise looks likely to improve representing the powerful Varian yard and is preferred to Absolutio while Heath Charnock is related to several smart sprinters and makes more appeal than stablemate Dutch Pursuit and fellow newcomer Ivory Charm.
