Ice On Fire showed some promise when fourth on her debut at this track in November but Distant Love has a more recent run under her belt and makes more appeal having finished runner-up here last time. BONNET DE DOUCHE should also have come on for her return at Yarmouth where she faced a difficult task behind a couple of Godolphin runners. She'll appreciate today's extra furlong and can open her account. Daring Damsel is more exposed and gets first-time blinkers today in the hope of improvement while the remainder are hard to fancy.
