Fine fare for sprint lovers but difficult stuff for others though LOST IN PARIS can give us a good run for our money. Tim Easterby's charge appears to have been handled with a late season campaign in mind and followed up a comfortable Scottish success with a fair third to the in-form Duchess Dora at Chester. However, he's far better off at the weights here and can reverse placings. Medicean Man and Sohraab were one-two here last time and both should be involved again with slight preference for the topweight to confirm placings, as he appears in the form of his life at present and Harry Bentley's claim will help his cause. Swiss Cross and Swiss Franc have both shown their worth this season and it would come as no surprise to see either or both in the shake-up.
