SALVATORE FURY scored over course and distance at this time last year and his latest second at Carlisle suggests he can return to winning ways off his current mark. Mr Mo Jo went close in lesser company at Thirsk last time but Haajes makes more appeal on his recent placed effort at Musselburgh. Economic Crisis remains 5lb higher than when landing a double over track and trip last month with both Sunny Side Up and Gottcher are preferred.
