Crackentorp races off the same mark as when winning this 12 months ago under the experienced Jacqueline Coward. He was prominent for a long way in a better race over course and distance last month and looks to be on the way back. Serena Brotherton rides Sirvino, successful over track and trip last month, and he should also go well while the booking of Jane Mangan for War Singer catches the eye. David Pipe's charge won five times on the Flat in France and though not seen since finishing fourth over hurdles at Ascot in November is unlikely to fail through lack of fitness. Cosmic Sun came back to form at Carlisle last time but it would be no surprise to see a big run from EAGLE ROCK. He stays further than this but finished fourth in the race last year off a 3lb higher mark and has his favoured ground today having floundered in the mud here last month.
