Angles Hill is favoured by the weights as he returns to action though he's yet to score in seven starts over timber. KOULTAS KING is taken to overcome today's unfavourable terms as Tim Vaughan's charge chases a hat-trick. He scored easily at Huntingdon earlier in the month and a conditional negates a large part of a double penalty. Quadrato looks best of the rest back in this company after finishing runner-up in a handicap on his return from a lay-off.
