Verdict

Milano Magic could figure in this back over hurdles while Phoenix Returns finished ahead of Blueside Boy over 2m here last time and looks ready for a step up in distance. But FORTY CROWN's close-up third over a similar trip at Wetherby three weeks ago looks the best form on offer in this and he's taken to get off the mark, though Heron's Mill caught the eye at Newcastle on only his second start and should continue on the upgrade now granted a stiffer test of stamina.
