Chatterer drops back in trip for her return to action though a string of placed efforts last season don't boost confidence. Cala Santanyi had a similar level of form and she can figure if ready to go on her first start since July but MORESWEETS 'N LACE is preferred. Gary Moore's mare has the advantage of a recent pipe-opener over 1m4f here under her belt and scored twice over C&D last term. She gets the nod here as she looks to have little to fear from either Ela Gondo Mou or Entrance on what they've shown so far.
