Divine Angel won a maiden at Windsor in August and a Southwell seller last time where she had today's rival RAKTICATE, who started favourite, two lengths back in fourth. However, the latter lost all chance at the start that day and has since run a better race behind Keep Calm on this track. That should give her the edge and the pair can fight out the finish, Lucy Bee's only success came in very heavy ground and she's been beaten in a couple of moderate events recently while Maypole Joe has been racing in poor company and will need the first-time visor to have an effect if he's to get involved.
