Verdict

Plenty of horses to consider in an open handicap including recent winners Old China (Catterick) and Chinese Spirit (Ayr), both of whom are climbing the weights, the latter under a 6lb penalty, and venturing onto synthetics for the first time in their respective careers. Kreb's Cycle is due a 4b rise after running his best race in ages when beaten a head by Portledge over 7f here last week, but this extra furlong is a concern, whilst the devilishly tough to win with Newmarket Warrior was close up behind subsequent winner Cool Team in what looked a strong C&D contest last month. However, ACRUX effectively arrives as a winner without a penalty, given that he'd almost certainly have prevailed with a clear run when finishing a close up fourth to Newcastle specialist Rock Warbler over 7f here last month, and he shouldn't be unduly troubled by the extra yardage tonight.
