This looks a good opportunity for GATEWOOD to open his account. He just failed to catch the winner on his debut at Windsor and should have no trouble confirming superiority with Kleitomachos, Proof and Red Eyes. Hawridge Song had Anatolian well behind when third at Nottingham recently and can figure, while Bright Abbey finished in front of stablemate Brunello at Sandown last month though both have plenty to find here. Another Whisper could prove best of the remainder stepping up in trip.
