Verdict

CROOKSTOWN only won by a neck at Market Rasen on Boxing Day and has a 7lb penalty to carry. But at least he's in form, which is more than you can say about his rivals, and the step up to 3m should suit. The top weight can follow up as Goodacres Garden failed to build on a fair reappearance at Carlisle when favourite at Musselburgh and Gilded Age is not the force of old. Over My Head's latest fourth here was an improvement but more is still needed.
