CROCO MISTER has been raised 3lb since running Five Rivers to half-a-length over course and distance last month but few of his rivals arrive in any kind of form and Rosemary Glasson's six-year-old should finally open his account today. Red Anchor sprang a surprise at Lingfield in February but normal service was resumed at Plumpton 12 days later while Endofdiscussion has shown little so far and Orang Utan isn't getting any closer. Persian Herald did finish second at Fakenham on New Year's Day but there were only four runners and he's been tailed off in two subsequent starts.
