CLIFFORDS REPRIEVE usually finds at least one too good but is hard to oppose in this company. Blinkers are fitted for the first time today and he'll be lucky to find an easier opportunity than this to open his account. Lisselton Cross looks next best on his earlier form and will have come on for his recent comeback run, while Lovat Lane may be suited by the drop back in trip. Fancourt is a half-sister to multiple Polytrack winner Methaaly and won't have to be anything special to land this on her debut.
