Cruiser will do well to follow up a narrow win at Windsor under a penalty and Perfect Cracker is 7lb higher than when scoring at Bath, though Ryan Tate takes off 5lb again. The three-year-olds should hold sway and HENRY THE AVIATOR can continue on an upward curve by defying the 6lb extra he picked up after winning with plenty in hand in a higher grade at Haydock last week. Gworn never recovered from a tardy start at Goodwood last time but is another having his sights lowered.
