Dressed In Lace is improving with experience and should make a bold bid to go one better than when runner-up to Pink Sapphire at Salisbury last month. But narrow preference is for EXCELETTE, who is also still heading in the right direction and showed the speed required for this sharp track when only beaten a short-head at Catterick last time. Tahnee Mara showed some promise on her debut over 6f at Doncaster and could be suited by this drop in distance - she looks the pick of the remainder.
