Rose Of Kiev posted her best effort yet when third at Newmarket last time but is one of the more exposed. It would be no surprise if Lacing improves past the latter stepping up in trip after a modest debut at Headquarters. But the vote goes to another likely improver in LADY MOSCOU after she chased the winner all the way to the line at Windsor on her recent introduction. Terse was spotted making up late ground at Lingfield and she's another who may prove too good for the newcomers Bimbo and Caius College Girl.
