Verdict

RAAJIH is turned out again just two days after finishing fourth over a much longer trip at Punchestown. He's handled a quick reappearance in the past and, though the ground will be fast enough for him, is clearly the form pick. Nearest The Pin has conditions to suit and will sport a variety of headgear again. He's quirky but will probably be the one to cash in if the selection finds this coming too soon. Coldstonesober was third at Tramore last month and makes more appeal than Pestal And Mortar and Araglen Lad of the others.
