Brick Dust finished a close-up third over C&D last month and another bold bid looks in the offing, but GOOD AUTHORITY makes more appeal. He found only Ducal, who runs in the previous race, too good here last time and Karen George's charge can go one better in this company. Gold Tobougg was a big disappointment in heavy ground at Newcastle in August after a promising debut, while Royal selection also failed to improve on her debut fourth when well beaten at Lingfield on her latest start.
