No sign of a winning three-year-old in the last 10 years and 2003 was the last time a favourite obliged. But MAJESTY doesn't know that and Richard Hannon's colt may well be good enough. He's likely to be vying for favouritism after landing a maiden at Warwick in good style and gets the nod ahead of the older sprinter Baby Strange. The latter drops in class for this and should make a bold bid along with Medici Time, who had Dream Catcher, Rylee Mooch and Crew Cut behind when winning last year's renewal off a higher mark. Maglietta Fina and Al Udeid could make the frame and look best of the rest.
