Placidia has her first start since September's fourth at Kempton and the longer distance will suit. Insaany also steps up in trip after a second over 7f at Mussellburgh, but preference goes to DORSET CREAM. The Cecil filly finished a creditable fifth to well regarded Oaks entry Inchila over 1m2f at Newbury on her return and can open her account now handicapping for the first time. Winter Spice made the frame over course and distance last month and makes most appeal of the remainder with an apprentice taking 5lb off her back for this.
