Race Verdict

A CERTAIN ROMANCE made a promising start to his racing career when runner-up over this trip at Yarmouth two weeks ago and can go one better today if handling the forecast soft ground. His main threat could come in the shape of David Brown's newcomer Burning Dawn. The Bernstein filly is certainly bred to have plenty of ability (distantly related to Grade 3 winner Crowd Pleaser) and cost 80,000gns as a juvenile. Vino Collapso looks next best.
