Verdict

Trillerin Minella, second at Chepstow last month when well ahead of Mist The Boat and The Last Bridge, is the only one of these boasting any recent worthwhile form. But he's run 10 times on good going and four times over this trip without managing a win and has gone up in the weights again. MOORLANDS GEORGE is still 7lb higher than for his last win but an absence since November is not a concern on round that suits and he makes more appeal than Donald McCain's pair Rocky Stone and Uncle Monty. Rebel Benefit may be best of the rest but has been out of sorts.
