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.
