Four of these have handicap ratings with LILAC LACE well ahead of Mace The Ace, Una Bella Cosa and Cielo Rojo. Tim Easterby's filly is also proven on the track with a third here last week and looks the one to beat. Of the remainder, Nelina hasn't been disgraced in a couple of starts on Polytrack and could go well. She makes most appeal of the rest unless Duchess Of Dreams or Niknad prove much better on this surface than they've shown so far.
