Krupskaya won her maiden at Newcastle but ran no sort of race when last at Longchamp in October. SECRET SYMPHONY is preferred on today's surface as he went close on a couple of occasions last month and Richard Hughes presence takes the eye. Ilsa Lund won't have to improve much to get involved and has the scope to do so while Lady Lunchalot is worth noting on her racecourse debut.
