In depth

Verdict

Franciscan was out of his depth at Kelso last time and will find this easier. But it's difficult to get away from DARK DUNE, who bolted up over course and distance two weeks ago having travelled strongly throughout. He still appears to be heading in the right direction. Ride The Range went close at Newcastle last month but Grandiloquent may need more time.
