Verdict

Four of the last five winners of this were aged seven or over and the 8-y-o TRALEE HILLS is appealing on the back of an encouraging reappearance in the 11.4f Windsor handicap won by Mellow Magic. He is now 4 lb better off with that rival and should appreciate this step back up in trip. Diamond Cutter probably found 2m on slow ground too much of a test at Nottingham on his final start of last season and he is second choice ahead of Saratoga Gold.
