Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

NORTHERN EXPRESS looked better the further he went when making a winning debut in good style at Beverley 3 weeks ago, so he's taken to defy a penalty over this slightly longer trip. Simons King is an interesting newcomer being a well-bred son of Kingman, so it will be interesting to see how he holds up in the betting.
