Verdict

CRISTAL GEM let down favourite backers when runner-up in a claimer at Kempton a week ago. However, this looks easier and she can make amends on her first start for Andrew Reid under today's favourable terms. Recent Wolverhampton maiden winner The Name Is Don has a bit to find at the weights with the selection but could still prove the main danger as the rest look up against it. Spiders Of Spring could prove the best of those as he won a seller at Redcar back in April.
