A couple stand out here. One of them is Place That Face, whose improved effort at Kempton last month gives her every chance today. But she'd earlier finished well behind PUCON on her debut over 6f at the same track. The latter was runner-up on that occasion and though Roger Teal's filly has disappointed since, she's given another chance to put the record straight here. Marie's Fantasy may do better back in maiden company but her form is not much stronger than that of Cambridge Duchess, who could prove best of the rest.
