Verdict

KING OF EDEN returned to form with a vengeance over 7f here last time. Never headed when scoring by five lengths, Eric Alston's charge won this in 2011 and can shrug off a penalty for a repeat. Johnny Cavagin also carries 6lb extra for his comeback win at Ripon where he had Sans Loi back in third and Gandalak is another to consider stepping up a furlong on only his third start for new connections. The latter's stablemate and Windsor winner Dick Bos is better than his poor reappearance effort suggests and Best Trip can make the frame.
