The way the priority system works, the highest priority is 1.

If you want something to replace packages, it has to have the same or a
higher priority (which is a lower numerical value).

So, if your OS repo priority is 1, you would have to set the CR repo's
Priority to 1 as well to get it to replace packages from the OS repo.
