    In depth

    Verdict

    Loyal Royal arrives on the back of a win at Lingfield, while Espy went close over C&D last month and should figure. Avonlini is not without claims and Francis Albert finished a respectable fifth under today's amateur in a similar event here in January. ITSTHURSDAYALREADY has won at Southwell this year, but was beaten less than length over C&D on his penultimate start and he gets the nod partnered by Becky Brisbourne, who has won three times from only five rides at this track.
