Verdict

STARLIGHT ANGEL was beaten three lengths despite finishing runner-up in a Ffos Las maiden race last time but it's still the best recent form on offer. Curl gets first-time blinkers after disappointing at Lingfield but could figure on his third at Haydock back in May while better is expected from Puteri Nur Laila having been set a stiff task in a much higher grade handicap over 7f at Doncaster on her latest start. Secretori may improve for the drop back to 5f and is preferred to Colourist and Michael's Song.
