Older fillies are favoured by the weights at this time of year and have held sway over the three-year-olds in this in recent years so it may be worth taking on City Image and Nell Gwynn fourth Exactement. KENDAM was third behind Gordon Lord Byron in the Group 1 Prix de la Foret at Longchamp in October and that's the best form on offer here. She can get the better of Ger Lyons' tough filly Lily's Angel, who has already won at Meydan and Kempton this year, and Ultrasonic. Sir Michael Stoute's four-year-old did well in Listed races last season but this is her first foray into a Group 3.
