Verdict

LOVING HOME drops back down into maiden company having finished a close-up third on his handicap debut at Goodwood. With solid form in the book, the Gosden charge gets the nod to open his account. Lingfield fourth Winter Thunder sports Godolphin's first colours ahead of the Charlie Appleby-trained newcomers and Paul Hanagan prefers Mutaraadif to the debutant Tasaaboq. The selection's stablemate Gold Struck is related to four winners including the useful Quenched and is another to note.
