Verdict

Danfazi has already made the frame at Redcar and Doncaster and is much preferred ahead of Jaga Time of the two with experience, though the form is nothing special. MECCA'S ANGEL is by the speedy Dark Angel and out of a mare who won over 5f as a juvenile. Michael Dods' grey is fancied to make a winning debut with Mark Johnston's By The Light bred to appreciate a longer trip. Sleeping Shadow changed hands for £26,000 at the sales and may prove the pick of the other newcomers.
