Verdict

Raining Horse once looked a useful prospect and has been well supported on his last four starts but has run poorly despite dropping to a very lowly mark. Lucinda Russell takes the unusual step of entering Moscow Mischief in a handicap for her chasing debut but the seven-year-old has plenty of weight and a long absence to defy as does Something Silver, who was beaten a distance on his only start this year in January. Leopold is another who was tailed off on his most recent start so this can go to SOUL ANGEL, who at least looked reasonably progressive when scoring on heavy ground at Hexham in March on only his sixth start over fences.
