Verdict

Honoured had Border Bandit just over 2l behind when scoring over the trip at Ripon but the latter didn't get the clearest of runs and there should be little between them here. Jamie Spencer has been on board when CIRCLE OF ANGELS has shown improved form on her two latest starts. He brought Ian Williams' filly with a late run to snatch the spoils at Doncaster and the assessor hasn't been harsh with a 4lb rise. She can win again especially as Master Of Song appeared to be suited by dropping back to 7f at Leicester last time. Betteras Bertie generally goes well on the track and has won from this mark in the past.
