Al Aakif was very green on debut at Nottingham at the start of the month but still managed to beat more experienced rivals. He’ll improve on that and will make a bold bid to defy his penalty, though could have been better drawn. Coastal Mist also made a winning start, at Wetherby, and looks a threat to all. Constitutional, Kilig, What A Business and Just Jean have shown varying amounts of ability but SILVER MISSION was an eye-catcher at Carlisle last month and the Dark Angel colt will know more today.
