It took Poppy Golightly 11 starts to get off the mark but she finally did so over C&D last month. She's closely matched with third-placed Fine Ruler on that form but should have the beating of Tous Les Deux once again. Kielty's Folly won here before finishing behind Very Well Red, who runs earlier on today's card, at Wolverhampton and a line through the latter gives him something to find with ABIGAILS ANGEL. Brett Johnson's filly is improving with every run and looks set to her lose her maiden tag here.
