Verdict

Radjhani Express has been raised 10lb since scoring at Cheltenham but runner-up Ackertac franked the form earlier this week so the form looks solid. Changing Times was third to Benefficient in a Grade 2 at The Festival, when Desert Cry was pulled up, and was also placed behind Captain Conan in a Grade 1 at Aintree but he has quite a bit to find with TAP NIGHT on that run. Lucinda Russell's six-year-old stayed on strongly into second in that latter race and can go one better here as Rebel Rebellion was scheduled to contest a novices' handicap here yesterday. Drumshambo and Aibrean may struggle in this grade.
