Diligent was well backed when second over a slightly shorter trip here last week. Mountain Of Angels won at Southwell in June but was last of three next time at Ffos Las and is now blinkered. Primogeniture is now 11lb lower than when third of four here in April but progress has stalled. LORD DE LA MINE is only a four-year-old and probably better than he’s shown so far over fences. This is his first run on going this fast but he could figure if taking a liking to the surface.
