The locally trained Abigails Angel is likely to have her fair share of suitors and Brett Johnson's mare has been a credit to herself with three successes and three runners-up prizes since the turn of the year. RIGOLLETO has also had a busy campaign but his lack of success has led to the handicapper dropping him to a more realistic mark, and with a small field likely to suit, he looks worth taking a view about. Scott Dixon has registered a 50% strike rate with his runners at Epsom during his short training career so wide margin Catterick winner, Dr Red Eye has to be respected. Kylladdie is back in headgear on a step up to seven furlongs, whilst Methayel has obliged at Brighton in the past so should not be ruled out after a lacklustre run at Newmarket.
