Magic City remains in fine form and won again at Epsom last time. However, a high draw hasn't done him any favours in this and GOOD AUTHORTY is fancied reverse earlier running over track and trip on better terms. The latter ran below par behind Askaud at Leicester on his latest start but is only 3lb higher than when scoring over course and distance in June and a return to this venue should bring out the best in him. Brave Echo got his head back in front at Deauville last time but both he and Spirit Of Sharjah have a bit to find with the principals as does Tidentime. Nenge Mboko has a penalty and a rise in class to contend with after rattling up a hat-trick over 6f and recent Ayr winner Alejandro makes more appeal.
