SECRET KODE is hard to get away from and will most probably start a short price. Brendan Powell's filly may have disappointed when a beaten favourite in soft ground at Leicester last time but, back on a fast surface, she can confirm superiority with Lady Stella to open her account. Speed Society and Acquaint have yet to show any worthwhile form so the newcomer Winter Picnic, a half-sister to winners in Italy, wouldn't need to be anything special to get involved.
