ACE MASTER produced his best effort so far when third over 7f on a slow track here back in November. He raced prominently throughout on that occasion which suggests today's step up to a mile could see him in a better light. He's a tentative selection ahead of a trio of less exposed rivals in Three Opera Divas, Katherine Parr and Jack's Revenge, who should all be capable of better in time. Evelyns Diamond was runner-up here last month but beaten nine lengths and is hard to fancy.
