It would be no surprise to see Parisian Pyramid pop up in this grade sooner rather than later, though it's more than three years since the grey was last in the winner's enclosure. CIRCUITOUS has been knocking on the door off similar marks of late and may be the one to beat from a decent draw, though Hab Reeh is better than he showed at Hamilton on Tuesday. Majestic Dream gets little respite from the handicapper but has place claims again and is preferred to last month's course and distance third Ferdy and the disappointing Holy Angel.
