Angels Calling was made favourite for a claimer at Wolverhampton last month but finished last and has plenty to prove now. SARAHMANDA has more scope and seems to be improving with experience. She doesn't look badly treated here on her latest fourth at Bath and gets the nod as none of the others have suggested a first win is imminent. Michael's Song, placed over C&D earlier this month and turned out again quickly after a run over 7f at Kempton on Wednesday, may be the best of them.
