DIVINE ANGEL comes out best on today's terms and won at Windsor before a recent poor effort in much better company at Newmarket. A chance is taken that she acts on the surface as Holding Fast is the only one with experience of the track and he was well beaten on both occasions. Rakticate won a similar event at Nottingham by five lengths a fortnight ago and will figure with a repeat but it's hard to make a serious case for any of the remainder.
