Bay gelding by Dark Angel / Fanciful Dancer (Groom Dancer). Purchased at the Tattersalls October Book 2 Yearling Sale for 100,000gns. He is a brother to two winners, including Listed winner Fanciful Angel. He traces back to useful Italian performers Distinctly Dancer and Titus Shadow.

Mountain Angel has gone from strength to strength and now at the age of five he has won four of his twenty starts, including two consecutive victories at Epsom this seaosn in the Class 2 City And Suburban Handicap and the Class 2 Investec Handicap on Oaks Day. On his next outing he stepped up in class at Royal Ascot and ran a very good race to finish fifth in the Listed Wolferton Stakes having received a bump during the first furlong. He then contested the John Smith's Cup at York where he raced prominently before fading close home, eventually finishing seventh, beaten just 4 1/4 lengths. He travelled to France for a 1m2f G3 Prix Gontaut-Biron at Deauville where he ran a very good race to finish second, beaten only 1 length by the French Guineas winner Olmedo. He was again G3-placed when travelling back to France for the Prix Dollar at the Arc meeting, coming within 3/4 length of making all in his favoured soft conditions. He is now on a career-high mark of 112.
