Barry Hills has done a superb job since taking over the reins followed the sad death of his son, John, and DANGEROUS AGE can add another success to an impressive recent tally. Although primarily campaigned on the all-weather on recent starts and with an 80-day absence to overcome, her best Turf form puts her in here with clear claims, especially as his handler has a 6lb lower mark to exploit back on grass. All Baytown Kestrel's victories have come on an artificial surface whilst A Legacy Of Love has disappointed returned to grass the last twice. Verus Delicia is a possible as she's in fair form at present but has never won in this grade so Catalinas Diamond rates the main threat off a decent mark and with conditions in her favour.
