CIRCUS MAXIMUS showed promise on his debut when hampered at a crucial point before running on nicely to finish fifth at the Curragh. The extra furlong will suit on the evidence of that performance, and he seems sure to improve like so many from Aidan O'Brien's yard do following their debuts. The son of Galileo can reverse form with I Am Superman, who finished second on that occasion, while Army Recruit has shown good form in his two starts to date and improved from his first run when second at Down Royal.
I AM SUPERMAN and Circus Maximus both produced promising efforts on debut in a large-field Curragh maiden last month and look the pair to focus on, with Michael O'Callaghan's charge taken to come out on top. Army Recruit is well up to winning a race like this and looks next best.
