Verdict

Jockey bookings suggest May's Perth winner Kris Cross may be the pick of Lucinda Russell's two runners here ahead of Hexham second The Friary, despite his absence since, but the interesting one could be FORTY CROWN. John Wade's bumper winner was far from disgraced on his hurdles bow at Carlisle and the longer trip seems certain to suit. Catching On has already won between the flags while Milan Royale should improve on his fifth at Market Rasen as he has a nice NH pedigree.
