Assertive Agent opened her account in maiden company in November and a couple of winners have come out of the race. But PARISIAN PYRAMID is given another chance as he's gone close on his last three starts and it could be his turn today. Street Power was slightly disappointing at Lingfield last time having been beaten only a head at the same track before that and Secret Millionaire was well beaten on his latest outing after finishing a nose behind the winner on his penultimate start. Teen Ager will have come on for a recent pipe-opener but has so far done all his winning over 7f or further.
