Unlucky to be drawn wide and having to be held up in last, ENACT finished with a late flourish over 6f at Lingfield on her return from a lay-off. Today's extra furlong is no problem and she gets the vote. Brave Prospector, Arganil and Angel's Pursuit all finished behind Sir Michael Stoute's filly on that occasion but the latter has won over C&D since and looks a danger. Duff is without a win this year but won this in 2008 and has to come into the reckoning, while Mosqueras Romance is a progressive filly and looks capable of running another big race.
