    In depth


    Zealot’s winning run came to end at Southwell a couple of days ago though he drops back down in class and steps up in distance for this. Dream Harder was beaten at Lingfield recently having earlier notched-up a hat-trick and accounted for both Busby and Freak Out in the process but CRYSTAL DELIGHT makes most appeal. The latter returned an impressive winner on his debut for William Jarvis and first outing after wind surgery and may well improve further now handicapping.
