In depth

Verdict

Halfsin and Waterclock have shown enough ability in the past to get involved but the former arrives in woeful form and the latter hasn't raced for over a year. Lucanin will need to step up on his reappearance third over a mile at this track but Cranach looks to have solid claims on the back of an impressive maiden win at Redcar. VILLORESI finished a close-up third to the progressive Continuum at Salisbury on his latest start and James Fanshawe's charge is fancied to come out best in this with a similar effort.
