Verdict

Pertemps Network and Calculated Risk were last seen over hurdles and both will be sharper for today's outing. King Kurt is up 6lb for a win at Haydock but is not out of this on his best form though COSMIC HALO is just preferred. Richard Fahey's charge was beaten only a length at Beverley recently which suggests he can add to his earlier win at Doncaster off today's mark. King Of Paradise is 8lb higher than when scoring over track and trip in June and this is tougher than the claimer First Sargeant won at Windsor last month.
