Divine Angel usually tries her best and this looks easier than her recent tasks. Maypole Joe has bits of form that give him a chance but the vote goes to the less exposed OPUS CACTUS. Marco Botti's filly finished runner-up in a claimer at Lingfield a week ago and won't have to improve much to land this. Don Eduardo has yet to match his debut effort at Brighton in three subsequent starts but headgear is applied for the first-time today while Doodles is just preferred to Ely Valley of the remainder.
