Verdict

Mr Gallivanter and Latenightrequest came home second and third behind Rudi Five One at Doncaster on their respective reappearances and it's tough to split them here, although both should enjoy a good season in handicap company. Filament Of Gold ran well on the all-weather on a couple of starts over the winter and looks threatening off the bottom perch whilst Champagne Rules gets the chance to prove a 100/1 shock here last time was no fluke. DULLINGHAM scored here in emphatic fashion on his final juvenile start last October over this trip and rates a progressive sort- he can record another success for Godolphin.
