Verdict

He's No Angel cost 200,000gns as a yearling but makes his belated racecourse debut after being sold for a vastly smaller sum in October. The betting may give the best clue to his chances and the vote goes to FRONTIER FIGHTER. The latter was beaten less than a length over C&D on his debut and is just preferred to Fly Haaf and Cape Crossing, who were both beaten further at Lingfield on their latest starts. Harvest Mist is thoroughly exposed and getting no nearer to winning while Fountain Girl finished last at this track on her recent debut.
