Perfect Portrait is entitled to come on for her debut spin at the track and should go well, though preference is for NICE ICE, who looks a danger to all now eased in grade. Wishful would also go close if repeating her latest effort.

WILLY TELL HIM struck on debut here in February and looked one to keep on the right side of. He should be thereabouts if the market vibes are positive on his first start since being gelded. Ima Take Charge and Don't Stalk Me look best of the rest.
