Verdict

Circle Of Angels ran a shocker when favourite on her handicap debut at Hamilton but has only had three runs and shouldn't be written off just yet. But even less exposed is IZZY THE OZZY, who won her maiden by eight lengths at Ripon in May. The form of that race may not be particularly strong but David Barron's filly had even more in hand than the official margin suggests and can only improve further. Shamdarley didn't run badly when fourth in a better race over C&D last time and makes more appeal than The Mellor Fella, while Next Edition could appreciate the return to a mile and shouldn't be ignored.
