Solid run from Scu's horse. Original quote: "Smiths Cross - Did well in bumpers last season (solid form) and is now ready to progress into Novice hurdles. Has schooled well and has tasted the tracked here. Will also love the soft/heavy ground so everything in place for a decent run with the horses running well at the moment too, but looks a tough race to start. His ability to handle the conditions will help a lot though and if his jumping holds up then each-way claims."
