MIDNIGHT FEAST has won three times on Polytrack recently including an apprentice handicap last week for which he goes unpenalised. He's the type who just does enough in front and probably has a bit more in hand so gets the verdict. See The Storm also won an apprentice contest at Newmarket last month but disappointed when attempting a follow-up at Yarmouth and is higher in the weights here. The veteran Unlimited hasn't run on Turf since last summer but is very well handicapped if Tony Carroll has him anywhere near his peak while the consistent Emiratesdotcom can always be relied on to get involved and looks booked for a place again. Rigolleto doesn't win very often but is well treated as a consequence.
