Sam Gold is a fascinating contender here on handicap debut. The form of his second at Nottingham in October could hardly have worked out any better with the winner bolting up in a handicap at Sandown last month and the third subsequently winning a Group 3. Roger Varian’s colt may need this first run for over 200-days however and SYMBOLIZATION can take advantage. He made a respectable return to action when second over seven furlongs here last month, the step up in trip is sure to bring some further improvement from him today and he has entries in two Group 1 races later this year which suggests his yard think a fair bit of him.
