ANGELIC AIR caught the eye staying on for third at Newmarket on her debut. The winner has since gone in again so the form looks solid enough and John Gosden's filly gets the nod. Arctic Moon showed a big improvement on her reappearance at this track when runner-up over a mile. She's a leading contender ahead of Inheritance, well beaten on her debut at headquarters but expected to do better. Popping Candy was friendless in the betting on her return to action and ran accordingly though she wasn't disgraced on last year's debut at Lingfield.
