MAJESTIC BREEZE won over the course and distance in July and was having her first start back on the track when caught close home by Invigilator last month. She looks ready to win again though Lisselton Cross, who also gained his only success over the course and distance, ran very well at Kempton last time and looks a threat. Maltease Ah had been going well on Turf before returning here with a good run behind Medam though the lightly-raced Monumental Man finished just in front of him there and is looking nicely handicapped these days. Kai is only 1lb higher than when scoring here in May and looked on the way back to form over the course and distance last time.
