Good close second at Bath a month ago. Unlucky in running over C&D just 3 days later and perhaps not ideally suited by a softer surface at Haydock last time. Remains of interest from mark.

Useful AW performer. Not at best back on turf last twice but is now lower than when successful on turf last August. Worth keeping an eye on in betting.

AW maiden winner last November. Didn't handle the Dip very well at Newmarket when well held on handicap debut/reappearance in June. No surprise if he resumes progression now.

Suited by the drop back to 7f when runner-up here last time, travelling powerfully for a long way. Should give another good account.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

WHAT AN ANGEL has had a couple of possible excuses since Bath and is worth a final chance to confirm the promise of that effort. Blessed ran an encouraging race over C&D last time and can provide the chief threat ahead of Claudius Secundus. Recent C&D scorer Colonel Whitehead also makes the shortlist.

Betting Forecast

12/1 Alfie Solomons (Ire), 15/2 What An Angel, 12/1 Pinnata (Ire), 14/1 Penpal (Ire), 11/1 Don't Tell Claire, 13/2 Colonel Whitehead (Ire), 7/1 Blessed (Ire), 7/1 Claudius Secundus (Ire), 10/1 Dutch Story, 12/1 With Promise, 14/1 Tambourine Girl
