Verdict

Gordon Elliott won this last year with the well-backed Oscar's Ballad and it would be no surprise to see RAAJIH follow suit. He makes his handicap debut off a very lowly mark having shown a bit more at Tramore 10 days ago and Nick Slatter is an eye-catching jockey booking. Pyjama Game has shown more than enough to suggest he can get competitive in a race of this nature while Alistair Whillans runs both Master Act, who finished ahead of Pyjama Game at Kelso last month, and Dundock, who started favourite at Ayr last time. Stormion was also well backed on his latest start but only beat one home and may be in the handicapper's grip now. More Equity usually runs her race and may be best of the rest.
