Freddy Tylicki (r) is hoping for a big run from Last Tango Inparis

Hughie Morrison's three-year-old looked an exciting prospect with an impressive victory in a Newbury maiden last October, but failed to make an impact in a Listed event on her spring return.

However, she fared significantly better at that level when narrowly beaten at Saint-Cloud in July and she makes her first start since then on what will be her all-weather debut.

Tylicki said: "She's a lovely filly. I last rode her at Saint-Cloud in a Listed race where she was narrowly beaten by a French horse (Golden Valentine) who went on to win a Group Three. There was only a neck between us.

"She's the type of filly who needs soft ground and she didn't really get it during the summer, that's why she hasn't been running.

"The all-weather will suit her, she's an easy ride and she looks well placed.

"She's owned by Helena Springfield who has been very good to me with Speedy Boarding and a few others."

Last Tango Inparis features in a 12-strong field for the one-mile-five-furlong Listed contest.

Yorkidding has won three times this season for Mark Johnston and was last seen finishing a creditable seventh in the Cesarewitch at Newmarket.

The trainer's son and assistant, Charlie Johnston, said: "She ran an unbelievable race in the Cesarewitch considering where she was drawn.

"She ended up stone cold last halfway and did a remarkable job to finish seventh in the end.

"She is in good form with herself. Lingfield might not be her perfect track, but on figures it doesn't look the strongest Listed race.

"She picked up a small bit of black type in Germany and the aim is to pick up some more.

"We looked at running her in a handicap at Leicester on Monday, but this looked too good an opportunity to miss at Listed level."

Other contenders include John Gosden's runaway Kempton scorer Eyeshine and the Luca Cumani-trained Bess Of Hardwick.
