Debdebdeb and GERTRUDE VERSED made their racecourse debuts in the same race over C&D a fortnight ago when the former came out just the best in third. However, the latter was spotted making up plenty of late ground and with that experience under her belt, John Gosden's filly is fancied to reverse running and land this. Pearla finished a long way behind the above mentioned pair and Fusion makes more appeal upped in trip today. Fair Comment looks pretty exposed but the newcomer Ice Pie is worth noting.
