BLUE HILLS is having the time of his life at the age of 11 and there's no reason why he won't go very well in the attempt to make it four wins from his last five runs as this is his trip and he's not going to be flustered by any ground changes. David Bridgewater deserves great credit for his handling of the Vettori gelding and he can defy a 7lb penalty under regular pilot Tommy Phelan. My Condor may find his preferred front-running tactics compromised by the combination of top weight and ground with cut but Arumun has place claims if firing along with the consistent if limited Ours. Dr Anubis is a possible outsider after an improved effort last time.
