Off the mark at the 16th attempt when landing a Chepstow 1m2f seller in September. Has held her form well in a couple of subsequent starts at Windsor and more recently at Newbury. Another bold bid looks likely.

Well held in all four starts so far and was a disappointing favourite at Wolverhampton before finishing last of five in a Leicester 1m2f contest on handicap debut when last seen in May. Needs to improve to take a hand here.

Off the mark for connections at the eighth time of asking when landing a Southwell 1m3f maiden beating six rivals in a weak looking contest earlier this month. Can mount a bold bid but handicapper may have the upper hand.

Four-race maiden has finished down the field in a couple of disappointing efforts at Doncaster and at this venue in September on final start for trainer Mark Walford. Hard to place any faith in.

Not unbacked when getting off the mark at the eighth attempt when landing a Yarmouth contest over 1m3½f last month following a number of solid efforts on turf over the summer. Capable of another bold bid.

Beaten over 66L in a couple of starts at this venue already this month. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.

Five-race maiden, running with plenty of credit in a couple of recent starts at this track over 1m6f/2m. Holding form well and merits plenty of respect here.

Winner on the AW at Lingfield the Dick Turpin gelding finished sixth of 13 beaten over 12L on sole start here over a similar trip in August. Plenty to prove at present.

Posted his best effort for sometime when finishing fourth of eight beaten 5½L over 1m2f at this venue earlier this month. Overall record casts doubt on his ability to get competitive here.

Betting

Forecast

Cheng Gong (11/8), Spirit Of Angel (7/4), Que Quieres (7/2), Ezzrah (6/1), Elegant Love (7/1), Dolly McQueen (12/1), Suakin (12/1), Highway Robbery (14/1), Beechwood James (22/1), Jailbreak (25/1), Duke of Yorkie (33/1)

Verdict

The Marcus Tregoning-trained SPIRIT OF ANGEL is difficult to dismiss on balance of his two most recent starts including a win at Newcastle over 1m4½f earlier this month. The Dark Angel gelding was winning for the second time in his career and, despite 6lb extra, can get the better of potential dangers in the shape of Elegant Love for trainer David Evans and Cheng Gong, a winner at Yarmouth last month. Recent Southwell winner Dolly McQueen can give a good account of herself once again.
