Verdict

BOCCIANI doesn't look an easy ride but probably had more in the locker when beating Moon Melody at Catterick on Monday and it would be no surprise if Dianne Sayer's six-year-old proved good enough to defy his penalty here. Rawaaj has been in good form and is only 4lb higher than when going down to subsequent winner Shalambar in a driving finish at Doncaster. He rates the danger as Call It On was tailed off on his latest start at Sandown, though Jersey Boys should do better now tried in handicap company.
