A winner on lightning quick ground two starts back LOST IN PARIS looks to be the call in a wide open handicap and we give him the vote marginally ahead of Hypnosis and Stolt. The selection is 10lbs heavier in the handicap than when recording that win but ran really well under a penalty last time. He was only just denied but a first time visor and a return to quicker ground should help hi improve.. Hynosis doesn't win that often but made a very pleasing reappearance last time. She remains fairly treated and should come on for that last effort. Stolt was held by the re-opposing The Bear last time but is weighted to reverse at least thse placings. With 5lbs removed from that run he's down to a career low weight so should show up in the mix. Jim Goldie does well at this track and his Rasaman has top weight to overcome so in a open race Lost In Paris should find his way home in front.
