Those with experience have yet to threaten though D'Avignon is likely to improve with a debut fifth over a mile here under his belt. He's preferred to Hanno and Secret Archive, but one of the newcomers may prove good enough and DANSANTE stands out. She's out of a prolific dam and can include Winter Derby winner Scintillo amongst her six winning relatives. Richard Hannon's filly gets the nod ahead of Shushu Sugartown, a half-sister to three winners, and Kirkman, a brother to 7f winner Personal Touch.
