M'selle was out of her depth in a Listed race at the Curragh last time but won her previous start at Ffos Las and was also successful over this course and distance on debut. She's tough and shouldn't be ignored while Basil Berry got his act together at Kempton earlier this month, though this will be his first run over 5f. Weisse Socken and Fine Art Fair are others for the short-list but we'll give another chance to ICE SLICE on the basis that she wasn't beaten far in better company last time and is well drawn if handling the shorter trip.
