In depth

Verdict

Winklevi was below par at Lingfield two weeks ago and has been on the go for a while, though is better on Turf. SARATOGA GOLD’s third behind Going Gone at Newmarket in October was franked when the winner won the Great Metropolitan at Epsom on his reappearance and Charlie Hills’ colt, who had Nellie Moon behind when winning at Newbury last year, is worth another try over this longer distance. Diamond Cutter is still a maiden but should be winning soon but Mellow Magic has gone up 4lb for winning at Windsor when Tralee Hills was a close-up fourth.
