King Of Eden is dropped in class but remains 4lb higher than when scoring at Newcastle in April and Albaqaa has been raised the same amount for finishing second at Doncaster last time. Askaud was a comfortable winner over track and trip last month but faces stiffer competition here while Midnight Feast has been winning lower grade handicaps on the all-weather this year. GOOD AUTHORITY had to overcome trouble in running at Goodwood to land an apprentices' race on his latest start. This is no tougher and a similar effort should see Karen George's charge go in again.
