Verdict

Opt Out has been placed in all three starts but the form is nothing to write home about and Max The Machine's recent Haydock fifth was probably a better effort. SLIPSTREAM ANGEL cost 28,000gns as a yearling and is a full sister to a winning miler. She'll stay further in time but conditions will make this a test of stamina and Richard Fahey's filly can make a winning debut. Fellow newcomer Red Gift may be best of the rest.
