BRONZE ANGEL's form in turf maidens looks good enough to see him off the mark in this company. He found only the Jeremy Noseda-trained hotpot Grandeur too good at Brighton in August and doesn't face anything of that calibre here. Hidden Justice showed improved form on his comeback here three weeks ago, though that run came over a mile, while Boots And Spurs should step up on his recent debut over 6f at Kempton. Athletic is related to Polytrack winners and makes more appeal than fellow newcomer Toss A Coin.
