Verdict

This looks a tight handicap. Famous Poet hasn't raced since August and is 8lb higher than his earlier win at Kempton while Good Authority is a winner without a penalty after landing an apprentices race at Goodwood though he steps up in class today. Only a length separated The Confessor and Bronze Prince at Goodwood last time and ZACYNTHUS finished the same distance ahead of Ducal when runner-up at Haydock last month. A couple of winners have already come out of that race and Luca Cumani's charge gets the vote to go one better in this.
