Lady Chloe has finished runner-up on her last two starts and sets the standard. But it's not a very high benchmark and one of these less exposed rivals could improve past her. Diptimat looks likely to step up on his debut effort at Haydock and Dark Spirit may improve for her first start on turf. After going close over a mile in October, O MA LAD was well backed on his return at Windsor over today's trip. However, he looked in need of the run on that occasion and he gets the tentative vote to make amends here. Cherry Tree Hill and Handles For Forks are worth noting in the betting on their debuts.
