OUR THREE GRACES had shown little for some time before a much-improved display when last seen, run out of things in the closing stages by Black Truffle over 7f on Lingfield's polytrack. She looks likely to remain competitive off her current mark and can go one better now. Renoir's Lady benefited from a canny George Baker ride to oblige here last time over 6f and looks a definite threat off a 4lb higher mark with the additional furlong no problem, whilst Koharu has to enter calculations on the back of a useful third to Moma Lee at Lingfield on turf. That was a major step forward from her previous effort when a well-beaten third behind Cara Gina at Bath.
