Verdict

Kruzhlinin still has plenty of scope and made a winning start over the larger obstacles at Carlisle. A P McCoy isn't a bad replacement for Jason Maguire, who has gone to Uttoxeter. Howard's Legacy also won at the first time of asking over fences, at Ffos Las, and is another likely to improve while Parsnip Pete impressed at Haydock and the four-year-old Elenika won on his UK debut at Huntingdon. MILARROW beat a couple of well-regarded types at Exeter and could be the one here off bottom weight, though Celtus is surely better than he showed when pulled up behind Howard's Legacy.
