My Guardian Angel and Putin have both won on the Flat this year. Prince Siegfried won Group 3 and Listed races on the level and looks a better prospect than Beaujolais but has been off the track for a year and his stable's novices often need a run or two. The Stig finished ahead of Mishrif at Huntingdon earlier this month and should confirm that form while To The Sky won at Newton Abbot last month, though was well beaten on the Devon course later. IT'S A MANS WORLD was beaten in a claimer at Perth when chasing a hat-trick but the first two are useful in that grade and Brian Ellison's gelding can bounce back here with his conditional rider taking off 10lb.
