Verdict

VILLORESI is the least exposed having won on his racecourse debut at Kempton in November by six lengths. James Fanshawe's charge is worth sticking with on his handicap bow. Kelpie Blitz also won at Kempton on his latest start and is upped the usual 6lb for that but Goldstorm never figured back on the Turf at Doncaster having won three times on the Polytrack earlier this year. Greylami has dropped to a tempting mark and should figure along with Saint Thomas, who dead-heated for first at Beverley last time, while the inconsistent Carazam is due one of his better efforts.
