This is a slightly better contest than the second division but still won't take much winning. MOLLY MILAN can race off the same mark as when second over course and distance last month and had Diamond D'amour behind when runner-up at Ayr earlier – she gets the vote. Cadgers Hole was only beaten half-a-length at Wetherby last time but Turtle Cask has gone off the boil lately and Naburn still has plenty to prove. Tribal Dance is probably having a pipe-opener before going back over fences.
