Shining Romeo was beaten only a nose over 1m2f at Lingfield and has yet to race over this far on the Flat. Hold Hands and is another with something to prove over today’s trip but Filament Of Gold has a shout off his current mark. Ali Bin Nayef won a Class 7 contest over track and trip last month but is 5lb higher while Stonecoldsoba posted a better effort over a longer distance at Chelmsford last time. SENOR GEORGE (NAP) also showed signs of a resurgence when a close-up fifth at Kempton and he gets the nod given he was beaten only a head over course and distance off a 10lb higher mark earlier this year.
