In depth

Verdict

Burning The Clocks wasn't beaten far on debut at Leicester and should have learned from the experience. Sandown fourth Zuzinia may be improving but Barchan looks moderate, as does Indescribable. Black Granite had his first run in decent company at Newmarket but was slowly away and may need more time. STONE ROSES also made her debut at HQ and showed plenty of pace before being bumped and dropping away inside the final furlong. The drop back to 5f might suit Michael Bell's Zebedee filly, who can come good today.
