Verdict

Baile Anrai won a maiden hurdle at Folkestone last month and looks to have a leading chance back in this company. Creswell Crusader has been placed on both starts over timber and he has to come into the reckoning, but recent Newton Abbot winner Milo Milan will need to improve further if he's to figure on today's terms. STORMING GALE was already beaten when falling at the last at Carlisle in February and the heavy ground may have taken its toll. Donald McCain's charge had been an impressive winner at Ffos Las before that and is given a chance here to prove his latest running all wrong.
