Bronze Angel lined up for crack at Darley Stakes

BRONZE ANGEL, winner of the Betfred Cambridgeshire on his last start, could step out of handicap company for the Darley Stakes on Saturday.

Marcus Tregoning's rapidly improving three-year-old has gone from strength to strength this season, and may return to the Rowley Mile for the Group 3 which is run at Newmarket, like the Cambridgeshire, and over the same distance of 1m1f.

Tregoning said: "There is a possibility Bronze Angel could run in the Darley Stakes on Saturday. He is going to do one more bit of work [on Thursday] and then we will decide but he's coming off a good win so he may well go there. He has come out of the Cambridgeshire in fantastic form and we are very pleased with him."

Bronze Angel's regular rider Hayley Turner will resume her partnership with the colt, having missed his Cambridgeshire victory due to riding commitments in America. William Buick deputised in her absence.

Tregoning added: "He fits the profile of a progressive three-year-old and he seems to be improving with every race. I think he can make his mark at Group 3 level, but whether it's this year or not, I don't know.

"As he gets more mature, he will get a mile and a quarter plus I would hope and he is an exciting horse for next year."
