Fan De Blues (1/1), Raya Time (2/1), Russian Diamond (5/1), Flindt (11/1), Recent Revelations (18/1), Follow The Crowd (40/1), Boherlug (100/1), Neptunus Equester (100/1), Jess's Corner (150/1)

Verdict

RAYA TIME took another step forward over fences when second in a C&D handicap at the big meeting last month and can go one better now returning to maiden company. Russian Diamond hasn't been seen since his fall at Galway last summer but he retains plenty of potential as a chaser if none the worse and he may provide a bigger threat than Fan de Blues.
