Portrait and Sweet As Honey both took a big step backwards last time but Fast Pace should improve on her debut fifth at Kempton. SERENATA left her previous form behind when runner-up at Warwick in October. Further progress is expected from the half-sister to the smart Circumvent and Paul Cole's filly gets the nod to open her account. Newcomers to look out for include Soryah and Mesmerized and the Selkirk filly Nur Jahan cost 180,000gns. Gertrude Versed is related to Lancashire Oaks winner Gertrude Bell and is another to keep an eye on in the betting.
