This could be the sort of challenge that Pauillac warms to however we prefer the claims of CROSS KENNON who just keeps getting better and better. Jennie Candlish is having a good season so far and this progressive gelding is improving fast. To be fair he will need to in order to defy a 10lb rise for a recent Uttoxeter win but as that was his first run of the season there may still be plenty left in the tank. Saphire Night will be happier now dropped back in grade and he handles soft ground well, Cashel Blue had an aborted run over fences last time out but his previous course form over hurdles has been significantly franked, whilst Kilvergan Boy is another to revert to hurdles this afternoon. Herons Well landed a gamble at Ffos Las last time out, proving in the process that he handles this ground, so the market needs to be watched again, as it does for Laborec who has his first start for Neil King this afternoon. Outlaw Tom is an interesting contender; he ran well at Uttoxeter when last seen in May and is a progressive horse who should make up into a nice chaser. Evan Williams may improve King Of Castle, whilst Callerlilly seemed to improve for the soft ground last time out when winning at Exeter in a hard-fought finish. Nothing else makes that much appeal and so we are happy to return to Cross Kennon as the nomination.
