Verdict

RAAJIH could only manage a modest sixth on his debut over a mile at Nottingham in October but is bred to come into his own over longer trips. John Gosden's colt could prove too good for these on his reappearance. Stablemate Musawama had today's rival Harry Lime well behind at Lingfield last month and the latter will need to step up on that effort to figure, but Lady Chaparral showed some promise when third on her only start last July and the runner-up has since won. Chapter Five and Doynosaur are both bumper winners making their debuts on the Flat.
