THEATRE ACT hasn’t won in more than two years but she was placing off higher marks last season and it’s not unrealistic to expect a bit of improvement for the switch to Dan Skelton. Her former trainer Chris Grant runs Kalaniti but she’s harder to fancy. Lee Side Lady continues to frustrate and her losing run now stretches back more than three years but Lace Bonnet beat Infiniti at Warwick in April and a case can also be made for Mrs Miggins and Celtic Sally.
