Verdict

RAYA TIME is interesting on his handicap debut and a big run could be forthcoming. Jungle Junction saw off plenty of these when winning at Fairyhouse, relishing the cut and thrust of such an event, and he can go well again. Entoucas was unlucky not to win the Grand Annual and will rightly be popular. Top Moon is interesting for the same connections.
