LISAMOUR finished third to the well-backed Heisman over a mile here last week but is bred to excel over middle-distances. Paul Cole's filly gets the vote ahead of Holberg Suite, who was less impressive on her recent debut over 1m2f but is sure to improve. Wolverhampton runner-up Gallic Destiny is preferred to Abyaat and the returning Black Label, despite Richard Hughes presence on the latter. Perspicace is out of a Listed winner and worth noting for the future along with fellow newcomer Smageta.
