Finished a close fourth over 1m at Lingfield last time out. Races off the same mark here and is interesting on his return to turf.

Successful on three of his four starts last year and ran well to finish third in a valuable handicap at Doncaster (1m, soft) in March. Remains open to improvement and is a leading contender in this contest.

In good form since joining this yard and was victorious in a novice contest over this trip at Lingfield in January. Has placed off a 1lb lower mark in the past and is returning from a break here.

Made an impressive return to action on his first start since being gelded when winning by 4L at Ascot (1m, soft) earlier this month. Remains open to improvement and interesting despite a 9lb rise in the weights.

Followed up a Lingfield novice stakes victory with a second at Kempton in March. Worth a check in the market on handicap and turf debut.

Placed over this trip at Lingfield in February but held in two subsequent outings and others have a more obvious chance in this.

Winner of two of his three starts so far including over 1m at Southwell earlier this month. Well held on handicap debut last June however but likely to fare better in this contest.

Betting

Forecast

Kynren (7/2), Mountain Angel (4/1), Hakeem (4/1), Chiefofchiefs (5/1), Fastar (10/1), Frank Bridge (16/1), First Selection (16/1), Mandarin (20/1), Windsor Beach (25/1), Burrumbeet (25/1), Chevallier (25/1), Contrapposto (25/1), Cliffs Of Capri (33/1), Franco's Secret (100/1)

Verdict

MOUNTAIN ANGEL resumed this season with an impressive victory and he is taken to follow-up that success in this concluding contest. The selection has to defy a 9lb rise in the weights but looks capable of doing so and in the process improving on his trainers 20% strike-rate (7/35) in recent weeks. Kynren would probably prefer the ground softer than is forecast here but he has won on a sound surface in the past and can finish second ahead of Fastar who was the winner of his final two starts last year.
