SOLACE finished just ahead of Mosman when runner-up at this track last month. The latter has been placed again since here but John Gosden's filly can confirm running and open her account. Camachoice never looked like catching the winner when fourth at Kempton last time but is another likely improver with his yard in fine form while Tight Lipped has bits of form that could see him figure but has to give plenty of weight to his younger rivals, as does Lil Sophella.
