Bouggatti faced a simple task at Folkestone last time but is in good form and should make his presence felt again, despite a new career-high mark.

It may be worth forgiving CIRCLE OF ANGELS her run in very soft ground at Ffos Las as she'd run well on fast ground at Doncaster and Pontefract earlier. Ian Williams' filly gets the nod here though Headline News is still heading in the right direction.
