Verdict

RAWAAFED was stepped up to 1m4f here on his first start for Keith Dalgleish. He faded badly in the final furlong and was beaten a long way in third but had finished a lot closer over track and trip last season and Richard Hughes presence suggests much better is expected today. Bishop's Castle makes his debut for new connections and has every chance on his form in maidens for Mark Johnston and the latter runs World Map in this. She needs to improve, as does Speed Boogie, but it would be no surprise if both finished ahead of Nonaynever, Silver Panther and Argaki.
